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.

This program will include ASL interpretation. For access needs, please email us at
