Graduate Public Practice

Neda Moridpour

Nedmorid

Neda Moridpour crosses disciplines and boundaries to explore social themes and urban issues of Iran through her photography, prints, installations, performances, and videos. Moridpour approaches art as a social practice that searches to establish dialogue in the public sphere. Born and raised in Iran, she brings a strong awareness of gender discrimination, inequality, and censorship to her philosophy.

Moridpour has facilitated workshops for survivors of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault in Iran and Los Angeles, and a recent project called The Auntie Roach focuses on the consequences of Iranian folk literature as it relates to violence against women in Iran. In order to engage society in these issues, Moridpour works with many socially active organizations such as Peace Over Violence, Se-pas, and Samar in Los Angeles and Tehran. Her latest collaboration with A Window Between Worlds, I CAN WE CAN, engaged more than 400 participants and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault and was exhibited at the Gallery Neuartig in San Pedro.

In addition, she is the Founding director of [P]Art Collective and the Associate Director at Louder Than Words that targets domestic violence and sexual assault through art interventions.
