Baesianz is a London-based collective and platform that celebrates Asian artists from all over the globe, founded by Sami Kimberley, Sarah Khan and Roxanne Farahmand in 2019.

Born from a shared need to nurture our Asian roots and uplift Asian communities, we organise multidisciplinary events including exhibitions, film screenings, solidarity fundraisers, workshops, radio shows, artist residencies, and audio-visual performances. Now a team of seven, we curate and exhibit the art and voices of Asians living both within and outside of Asia to create an evolving archive that can be experienced by all.

Our collective now includes Baesianz FC and Baesianz Adventure Club, a football team and outdoors space for women, trans and non-binary people of Asian heritage.

At the time of our founding, we asked ourselves: in which ways have our lives been impacted by ideas around assimilation? How can the creative outputs of Asian artists be celebrated in a contemporary landscape without facing tokenism? Where do we go to creatively replenish our roots? Baesianz was our answer.
