Event Description: Reception to follow in Dweck Lobby The culminating event to the participatory exhibition and public program Scoring the Stacks, Katowitz Radin Artist in Residence Kameelah Janan Rasheed reflects on what the project has produced and on how radical pedagogy, play and learning are an integral part of her artistic practice. Rasheed discusses how the process of the project is cumulative and iterative, and poses the question of how the design of an exhibition can be responsive and agile when audience interaction is its guiding force. The second portion of the program is a conversation between Rasheed and Cora Fisher, BPL’s Curator of Visual Art Programming. About the Artist Kameelah Janan Rasheed (b. 1985, East Palo Alto CA and based in Brooklyn, NY) is the 2019 Katowitz Radin Artist in Residence at Brooklyn Public Library. Rasheed is an artist and learner seeking to make her thinking visible through an ecosystem of iterative projects such as “architecturally-scaled collages,” (Frieze Magazine, Winter 2018), poems/poetic gestures/words in the proximity of poems, long-form essays, publications, large-scale public works, digital archives, teaching, curriculum development, lecture performances, stand-up comedy, and other forms yet to be determined. Her past work has been presented at the 2017 Venice Biennale, Contemporary Art Gallery of Vancouver, New Museum of Contemporary Art, Brooklyn Museum, The Kitchen, Portland Institute of Contemporary Art, Institute of Contemporary Art - Philadelphia, Printed Matter, Jack Shainman Gallery, Studio Museum in Harlem, Brooklyn Museum, Bronx Museum, Queens Museum, Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, Brooklyn Academy of Music, and elsewhere. Rasheed 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. She holds a BA in Public Policy and Africana Studies from Pomona College (2006) and an M.A in Secondary Social Studies Education from Stanford Univers
