Join artist Kameelah Janan Rasheed and David C. and Sarajean Ruttenberg Associate Curator of Photography and Media Grace Deveney for a discussion of the exhibition Unsewn Time.

Kameelah Janan Rasheed (American, born 1985) uses printmaking, photography, painting, and video to explore alternative systems of reading, writing, and learning. For Unsewn Time, Rasheed worked with mark making, rubbing, folding, chemical reactions, and other material explorations to consider how meaning is conveyed in forms that are created through intimate rituals and improvisational processes. Moving between poetic fragments, annotations, and marks to other modes of storytelling, she considers our relationships to unpredictable change and ruptures in time.

This lecture is made possible by the Frank J. Mooney Memorial Fund.
