During a residency at Queenslab, Baseera Khan will begin work on a pilot for a television show. In collaboration with a community of close friends, Khan will stage, direct, and perform scenes based on intimate, real-life conversations and situations. By creating a modular film set that replicates their own apartment, Khan cultivates comfort amongst their performers/friends and collapses the parallel realities of the often-lonely domestic life and abundant online social life that many are experiencing during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Curated by Lumi Tan.


In Residence at Queenslab: September 11–October 11

Livestream Rehearsals: September 11–13 and 18

Livestream of Film Shoots: September 19–20 and 25–27

Rough cuts of selected scenes to be released after September 27


Baseera Khan: By Faith is made possible with commissioning support from Marta Heflin Foundation; annual grants from Lambent Foundation Fund of Tides Foundation, Howard Gilman Foundation, and The Cowles Charitable Trust; and in part by public funds from New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
