“Catalyst: New Projects by Meredith James, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, and Casey Tang” Exhibition at Queens Museum of Art
Meredith James, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, and Casey Tang make work that sheds light on personal and cultural forces—perception, record-keeping, vernacular belief—that drive the formation of individual and collective narratives.
Working in video, sculpture, and theater, Meredith James explores mechanisms of perception and the fallibility of observation. Elaborately crafted and playfully executed, her work reveals surprising and disorienting dimensions of the way we see the world around us. Kameelah Janan Rasheed is an artist-archivist who works in the space between visual and literary arts to explore how we construct narratives around our personal and social histories. She creates archive-like installations that visually map conversations between texts, ephemera, personal memorabilia, and photography. Casey Tang freely engages diverse disciplines including ecology and musicology in his exploration of socio-cultural narratives within and outside of Western worldviews. Through geographic and historic investigation of human experiences and material cultures, Tang re-contextualizes cultural systems in his multi-disciplinary practice that includes video, sound, and graphics and sculptural installation.
