Statement

The work of Kaz Rahman explores and coalesces the intersection between Islamic artistic expression, the natural elements and contemporary culture.

Rahman grew up in Ontario, Canada and studied Visual Arts at York University in Toronto (BFA), painting/photography at the University of Northumbria in Newcastle, England and later Media Arts at City College (CUNY) in New York City where he earned his MFA.  He has also lived in Moscow, Russia (1998), Budapest, Hungary (1999) and Hyderabad, India (2004-08) and currently lives and works in Pittsburgh (USA) where he is faculty in Film/ Video at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh.

Rahman has screened or exhibited his work at prominent venues such as Anthology Film Archives (New York City), National Film Board of Canada (Toronto), India Habitat Centre (Delhi), Salar Jung Museum (Hyderabad), Andy Warhol Museum (Pittsburgh) and The San Jose Museum of Art (San Jose, USA).

His recent film ‘Salaat’ (2010) recieved many reviews in the English, Urdu and Telugu media over the past year and was shown as a multi-channel installation at the International Festival of Video Art in Camaguey, Cuba in late 2011.

His new film 'Deccani Souls' (2012) is a mystical journey that weaves characters through the portentous streets, cafes and chaos of Hyderabad trying to make sense of this magically tragic city and the forgotten yet painful history of 1948 and 'Operation Polo'.
