Shani Jamila is a visual artist and the host of Lineage, a podcast featuring artist to artist dialogues about how the idea of home influences the creative practice and society at large.
Jamila’s travels to nearly fifty countries deeply inform her collage, photography and painting practice. She has exhibited and performed at the Manifesta European Biennial of Contemporary Art, Harvard University’s Cooper Gallery, the Reginald F. Lewis Museum, New Museum and the Brooklyn Museum. The live community conversations she’s hosted with institutions including the Aperture Foundation, Lincoln Center and New York Live Arts are known for engaging discussions about the arts and society. A Fulbright scholar once named “One of our 35 Most Remarkable Women” by ESSENCE magazine, her portrait and quote are featured in “A Choice to Change the World,” a mural of socially engaged artists and advocates at her alma mater Spelman College.
