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.
Muslims in Brooklyn is a public arts and history project which amplifies the stories of Brooklyn’s diverse Muslim communities. For well over a century, Muslims have lived, worked, and prayed in Brooklyn, making it a major center of Muslim life for New York City and the nation. As such, the histories and experiences of Brooklyn’s Muslim communities hold great resonance for national conversations on religious diversity and pluralism.
