Baseera Khan

The Kitchen
Sep 11th 2020 — Oct 11th 2020

The fall television season takes an experimental turn with By Faith, a new performance that Baseera Khan plans to stage during his month-long residency at Queenslab.

Live-streaming his endeavor to The Kitchen's recently launched digital platform—The Kitchen OnScreen—Khan attempts to conceive, write, and film an original television pilot within the allocated time frame. A set replicating the artist's longtime Crown Heights apartment provides a backdrop for the story—while a cast of Khan's friends and collaborators—Vaginal Davis, Lia Gangitano, and Amy Sillman among them—come together to bring it to life.
