Baesianz is a collective and platform based in London, UK, that celebrates Asian artists from all over the globe, founded by Sami Kimberley, Sarah Khan and Roxanne Farahmand, with Asian origins spanning China, Pakistan and Iran.
By producing, curating and exhibiting the art and voices of Asians living both within and outside of Asia, we aim to create an evolving library that can be experienced by all.
We asked ourselves: in which ways have our lives been impacted by ideas around multiculturalism and integration? How can the creative outputs of Asians be celebrated in a contemporary landscape without tokenism or marginalisation? Where do we go to creatively replenish our roots? Baesianz was our answer.
We are available to work collaboratively with galleries, brands and publications to craft projects which utilise art and creative practice to elevate Asian voices. Previous partners include Nowness Asia, Guts Gallery, Girls in Film, Refinery 29, The Bomb Factory Art Foundation and Eastern Margins. You can see our projects here.
Our core team comprises a creative director, writer, casting director and cultural producer alongside an extended community of artists, producers, filmmakers, musicians and more.
