Kameelah Janan Rasheed is a learner* from East Palo Alto, CA

Brooklyn | Berlin | Johannesburg

* learning as a process of radical slowing down/de-acceleration in the midst of the efficiency and optimization frenzy; an engagement with curiosity, serendipity, improvisation, and tangents; learning as a persistent reminder of the shifting ecologies of what it means to know something

Learning is core to my practice and, more importantly, to my life. I have worked in education since the age of ten. A curious fourth grader, I began volunteering in my younger brother's special education classroom. Now at 38, I have worked as an educator across various contexts: public high schools, museums, universities, libraries, and more. Since 2021, I have been an adjunct at the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art and a Visiting Critic at Yale School of Art (MFA Painting and Printmaking, 2021; MFA Sculpture, 2022-present). I was also a Mentor-in-Residence (2022-2023) for the Future Memory track for New Museum: NEW INC and frequently teach at the School for Poetic Computation.  

I also conduct studio visits by invitation.
