Work

Kameelah Janan Rasheed is artist-archivist based in Brooklyn, NY. Originally from East Palo Alto, CA with brief stints in Johannesburg, South Africa, Kameelah is interested in historiography, language (and the constructions thereof), as well as technologies of self-publishing and non-institutional archiving. Currently, she is a Keyholder Resident at the Lower East Side Printshop where she is working on a series of large-scale abstract monoprints. She is also a recipient of the Triple Canopy's 2015 NYPL Labs Commission where she is conducting archival research on early 20th-century Black religious movements, self-publishing, and heterodoxy.
