The Art + Art History Department is pleased to present a public artist talk by Mojdeh Rezaeipour on Tuesday, 2/19 at 4PM in Larrabee Studio Arts Center (100 Gibson Ave.- near HR).

Mojdeh Rezaeipour is an Iranian American artist and storyteller based in Washington DC. Her organic mixed media works and installations explore hyphenated identity and belonging, as well as the intersections of our collective striving for healing and transformation. After completing her architectural studies at UC Berkeley, Mojdeh has lived and worked in San Francisco, New York, Tokyo and Berlin, where she spent the summer of 2018 on an arts fellowship awarded by The Studio Visit. Her exhibitions locally and internationally have been featured in publications such as The Rib, DIRT, So To Speak Feminist Journal, and The Washington Post. She has told stories on The Moth Podcast and Radio Hour on NPR and served as The Moth’s Washington DC StorySlam Producer from 2015-2018. Mojdeh’s work is privately collected worldwide. In addition, several pieces from her Iran | America series were publicly acquired in 2018 by Eaton Workshop (Washington, DC) as a part of their permanent collection. 

As a Visiting Artist at Washington College, Mojdeh will spend two days on campus, speaking with studio art classes and meeting individually with studio art seniors, in addition to the 4PM public talk about her work. See more of the artist’s work at www.mojdeh.art. This lecture is presented as part of the Art + Art History Department’s 2018-2019 Visiting Artist Lecture Series.

Following the artist talk, please join us to view Mojdeh Rezaeipour’s exhibit at China Hutch Projects (211 Philosophers Terrace). China Hutch Projects (www.chinahutchprojects.com) is an off-campus art exhibition space affiliated with the Art + Art History Department. A reception for the exhibit will begin at 5:30pm.

All events are free and open to the public, and all are warmly invited to attend.
