#2 Tahir Carl Karmali – Visual Artist

Updated: May 4, 2020


Meet Tahir

Working across multiple mediums, materials, and photography, Brooklyn-based artist Tahir's interests lie in manipulating materials that perpetuate colonialism. He draws from his own experiences as a well-traveled Kenyan citizen to structure narratives around migratory identity. Tahir received his Masters of Digital Photography from the School of Visual Arts, New York. Selected exhibitions include “Jua Kali,” a part of “Making Africa,” High Museum of Art, Atlanta (2017), Kunsthal Rotterdam, Netherlands (2016), and Guggenheim, Bilbao, Spain (2015), among other venues; “PAPER:Work,” Art Africa Fair, Cape Town, and Pioneer Works, Brooklyn, both 2017.

What we discuss

  1. The role of art in addressing social issues

  2. The obstacles facing youth who want to pursue art and any ‘unpredictable’ careers

  3. How to balance finding economic, psychological and emotional fulfilment
