We are thrilled to announce on September 8th, Hajra Waheed will be opening her first major museum solo exhibition in the US at CAM, St. Louis. Waheed’s multidisciplinary practice explores the legacies of colonial and state violence with a uniquely poetic approach and engagement with the world. Weaving between the intimate and infinite constellations of the communities of which she is a part, her works -while rooted in the historical- imagine new possibilities towards a radically collective and borderless future. Featuring recent and newly commissioned work including video, sculpture, painting and works on paper, the exhibition activates CAM’s main galleries and centers on a new iteration of Hum (2020) – the artist’s seminal multichannel musical composition and sound installation.
Accompanied by an extensive catalog, Hajra Waheed: A Solo Exhibition is organized for CAM St. Louis by Wassan Al-Khudairi, former Ferring Foundation Chief Curator, with Misa Jeffereis, Associate Curator. Major support is provided by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec. The exhibition is generously supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, The Strive Fund, and the Whitaker Foundation.
The exhibition runs from September 8 – February 11, 2024. Stay tuned for more upcoming announcements on the exhibition !
