An Opening, an installation of audio and visual artworks by Brooklyn-based artist Kameelah Janan Rasheed, engages with a multiplicity of Muslim experiences in Brooklyn. Eleven large-scale prints by Rasheed are placed in conversation with audio narratives from oral histories drawn from BHS’s recent Muslims in Brooklyn project. The result is an immersive encounter with art and sound that challenges narrow conceptions of Muslim identity and history.
