"Growing up in the Denton area of Texas as a queer, South-Asian Muslim, Khan learned a lot about how her body is read in America: as a site for projections of both desire and hatred, sexualization and expectations of modesty; with a supposed 'homeland' to which she doesn’t actually belong. Now an artist at a pivotal point in her career, that continued experience of alienation and bodily policing both haunts and fuels her work." 

Vice profiles Baseera Khan (AP Mentor). Look for an announcement from Art Practice soon about Khan's expanding role in our program.
