Artist Baseera Khan presents the debut live performance of their album I Am an Archive, accompanied by singer/bassist Caithlin De Marrais and guitarist Kaia Fischer of Rainer Maria, and drummer Stuart Gunter of Chamomile & Whiskey. The album was created for the special exhibition Baseera Khan: I Am an Archive — where, often using their own body as an archive, Khan engages colonial histories through collage, sculpture, performance, and installation to map geographies of the future. After the performance, stay for a conversation between the musicians about scoring an exhibition and how sound and installation work together in Khan’s artistic practice.

Tickets are $25 and include after-hours admission to Baseera Khan: I Am an Archive. Member tickets are $20. Not a Member? Join today!
