MFA Photography, Video and Related Media presents a talk and discussion with faculty member Kameelah Janan Rasheed, as part of its Scheimpflug Lecture Series.

Kameelah Janan Rasheed (b.1985) is a Brooklyn-based interdisciplinary artist, writer and former public high school teacher from East Palo Alto, CA. Through installation works that combine photography, printmaking, publications, poetry and performance, Rasheed's research and work examine language as it relates to constructions of black subjectivity.

Rasheed's work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. Her work has been presented at the 2017 Venice Biennale, Institute of Contemporary Art – Philadelphia, Printed Matter, Jack Shainman Gallery, Studio Museum in Harlem, Bronx Museum, Queens Museum, Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Pinchuk Art Centre, and others. Her work has been written about Artforum, Guernica magazine, The New York Times, Art 21, The Wall Street Journal and ArtSlant.

She is on the faculty of the MFA Fine Arts program at the School of Visual Arts and also works full-time as a social studies curriculum developer for New York public schools. A 2006 Amy Biehl Fulbright Scholar to South Africa, she holds a BA in Public Policy and Africana Studies from Pomona College (2006) and an EdM in Secondary Education from Stanford University (2008).
