About the Artist

Khaleb Brooks (b.1991, USA) is a multi- disciplinary artist and researcher exploring blackness, transness and collective memory. Through painting, performance and video his latest works blur the lines between history and futures in an attempt to explore the possibilities inherent in liminal spaces. A liminal space is in between worlds, dislocation, without rights, non- being. Meshing the black queer figure with surreal environments in paintings and entering transcendental states in performance he forces his audience to confront the literal and social death of black trans people globally. Khaleb is currently an artist in residence at the Tate Modern. Khaleb lives and works in London, UK.
