Biography

Keli Safia Maksud is a Kenyan-Tanzanian-Canadian-Muslim-Christian visual artist and writer based
in New York. Concerned with histories of colonial encounters and its effects on memory, Maksud’s
interdisciplinary practice favours the liminal space between fixed identities and works towards
destabilising received histories in order to expose fictions of the state. Maksud earned her BFA in
Painting from the Ontario College of Art and Design University, a Diploma in Art and Curatorial Studies
at the New Centre for Research and Practice and an MFA from Columbia University. Her work has been
included in the Bamako Biennial, National Museum of Contemporary Art -Seoul, and Galería Nueva.
