Performance: Baseera Khan Presents I Am an Archive

July 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$20 – $25

Artist Baseera Khan presents the debut live performance of their album I Am an Archive, accompanied by singer/bassist Caithlin De Marrais and guitarist Kaia Fischer of Rainer Maria, and drummer Stuart Gunter of Chamomile & Whiskey. The album was created for the special exhibition Baseera Khan: I Am an Archive—where, often using their own body as an archive, Khan engages colonial histories through collage, sculpture, performance, and installation to map geographies of the future. After the performance, stay for a conversation between the musicians about scoring an exhibition and how sound and installation work together in Khan’s artistic practice.

Tickets are $25 and include after-hours admission to Baseera Khan: I Am an Archive. Member tickets are $20. Not a Member? Join today!

This program will include ASL interpretation. For access needs, please email us at access@brooklynmuseum.org.
