Baseera Khan compares their own body, life, and art to an archive, through which the artist calls out the othering, xenophobia, and surveillance that underpin social expectations of assimilation into dominant U.S. culture. In their exhibition I Am an Archive, Khan presents a kaleidoscope of references to personal and political conflicts that encompass their background growing up Muslim in Texas; the heightened nationalist violence in the United States and India; and their solidarity with exploited women and femmes of color worldwide. The artist’s experiences as a femme Muslim inform their decolonial, feminist explorations of the impact of labor and politics on individual lives. See I Am an Archive, on view through July 10, 2022.

Multiple workers coalitions shut down Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges this morning. NY has denied financial assistance to unemployed and undocumented workers, failed to cancel rent, chooses not to tax the rich, and underfunds public schools.
The government’s response to COVID on all levels is now a year-long failure to contain the virus and support workers. Over half a million people nationally were left to die.
