Khaulah Naima Nuruddin is a multimedia artist from Milwaukee, Wisconsin who lives and works in South Florida. Nuruddin’s work focuses on how art can be both personal expression and social commentary. Her work addresses how discrimination creates situational experiences of freedom as a result of social systems that are subject to change in time and space, imposed by outside forces as well as the self. Nuruddin’s work promotes Black visual art and initiates public discussion of race, sexuality and the social transfer inherent to artistic expression.
Nuruddin earned her BFA from The University of South Florida and her MFA from Florida Atlantic University. Her commitment to education through the arts and art education drives Nuruddin’s curatorial practice, which is focused on sharing the work of under-represented artists and addressing current social issues. In addition to being an adjunct studio art instructor, Nuruddin is Curator and Exhibitions Manager at the Spady Cultural Heritage Museum.
