Her solo, group exhibitions, and film screenings are available to browse on her website.

In this lecture, “Contemporary Migrant Kitchens: Empty-Handed Not Empty-Headed,” Dr. Khan discusses her project “Migrant Kitchens,” a series of short films from 2015-2017 on migrants in Queens, N.Y. An on-going project, Dr. Khan created the work to highlight the obstacles hard working citizens face, daily, in the most diverse community in the world. Dr. Khan also shares how she created the project, the multimedia she uses to story tell, and the larger impact the media morsels have on select Queens residents and their communities at large.

Dr. Khan’s creations are informed by training in Middle Eastern history (BA), public health and nutrition (MPH, MS) and traditional ecological knowledge systems/plant sciences in South Asia and China (PhD). A two-time Fulbright scholar, Khan has been awarded artist residencies, grants, and fellowships. Her work has appeared in Museum of the Moving Image, Madison Children’s Museum, The Kimmel Gallery at NYUQueens MuseumAsian Arts InitiativeAsian American Writers Workshop Open CityRoads and KingdomsCulinary Backstreets, The Art of Eating, and Modern Farmer.  

Inspired by global issues important to Linda McCartney, CCP’s Spring 2023 Lecture Series is generously sponsored by JP Morgan Chase & Co.

*All events are FREE and open to the public, with first-come, first-serve auditorium seating.
