Khaleb Brooks is an interdisciplinary artist exploring blackness, transgender experiences and collective memory. His work meshes the black queer figure with surreal environments in paintings, uses printmaking to question the politics of desire and offers performance as a way to engage with the unjust deaths of black people globally. Over the last year Khaleb has been an artist in residence at the Tate Modern, where they used the museums collection to lead weekly workshops and create work around the Trans Atlantic slave trade. Performing in the 2019 Venice Biennale and consistently pushing the boundaries of art as a tool to politically engage, Khaleb continues to exhibit globally: Institute of Contemporary Art (2020 and 2018), Schwules Museum in Berlin (2019), Gazelli Art House in London (2019), GlogauAir in Berlin (2019), 198 Contemporary in London (2017) and We- Dey Gallery in Vienna (2018). Khaleb is from Chicago and is currently based in London.
