Neda Moridpour is a socially engaged feminist artist, advocate, educator, and co-founder of the two artist-activist collaboratives, [P]Art Collective (with Pouya Afshar) and 'LOUDER THAN WORDS' (with S.A. Bachman).
Moridpour approaches art as a social practice that crosses disciplines and boundaries in order to explore social issues and urban realities, to establish dialogue, and to mobilize communities. Her art transforms the seemingly quotidian and mundane via bold round-table talks, visual and performative interventions, prints and lens-based practices.
Born and raised in Iran, a strong awareness of gender discrimination, inequality, and censorship permeates her philosophy. She is a MFA graduate from the Public Practice Program, founded by Suzanne Lacy, at Otis College of Art and Design. Moridpour's work has been exhibited in the United States, Iran, and China. Her collaboration with A Window Between Worlds titled “I CAN WE CAN” engaged more than 20,000 participants globally and was exhibited at the Gallery Neuartig. In 2014, her work with LOUDER THAN WORDS examining domestic violence and sexual assault was honored by the Women’s Caucus for Art, and she is a 2014 award recipient from the Center for Cultural Innovation.
