The Department of Visual and Performing Arts invite you to the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus to view work by artist Mojdeh Rezaeipour.

From an ongoing series of the artist's work entitled "Piecing Myself Back Together", where she deconstructs and reconstructs scenes from her elementary school in search for new layers of memory and understanding. Entering the school system in a religious state (Iran) was her introduction and portal into the experience of oppression. With an understanding that systems of oppression in our world are overlapping and intertwined, this body of work is both incredibly personal and universal in the way that it connects the artist to trauma rooted in our collective experiences.

About the series theme Soapbox:
Historically, a soapbox doubled as an impromptu stage upon which someone could stand to deliver a speech, usually of a political or social nature. This themed exhibition series allows artists to use the highly visible Open Gallery as a Soapbox from which to present ideas and issues they feel are underrepresented in the current national conversation.
