Upping the ante on dance coverage and conversation

Nishat Hossain



Nishat Hossain is a BA candidate in Independent Visual Studies at Haverford College. Her works are indelibly stamped by scarcity the same way her body and psychological welfare have been since childhood. She uses her body, the most cheaply and easily available material, to explore how its corporeal and psychic specificities clash with the habitus she continues to acquire as an artist and scholar, how her race, class, gender, sexuality, and mental illness misfire with the relationships and institutions she inhabits. Her works have exhibited nationally and internationally at venues including San Francisco Cinematheque, Anthology Film Archives, Woodmere Art Museum, and Mana Contemporary.
