Neda Moridpour is a Kurdish-Iranian artist, educator, organizer, and co-founder of two artist-activist collaboratives, LOUDER THAN WORDS and [P]Art Collective. Her practice crosses disciplines and boundaries to investigate cycles of violence that leads to displacement, gender, and racial inequity while establishing dialogue and mobilizing communities. Through collaboration, her practice transforms the seemingly quotidian and mundane via visual and performative interventions, lens-based practices and bold public roundtables and discussions.
[P]Art Collective’s short animation, LA DOLCE VITA, has been screened as an official selection at international film festivals such as the Buffalo International Film Festival and the Burbank International Film Festival in 2020. LOUDER THAN WORDS received the 2014 Women’s Caucus for Art International Honor Roll award. Her work has been exhibited in the U.S., Iran, and China and is in the collection of the L.A. County Museum of Art, Denver Art Museum, Detroit Institute of Arts, and The Center for the Study of Political Graphics.
Moridpour is a Professor of the Practice at School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston at Tufts University and is currently a SELECT (Social Emotional Learning for Equity and Civic Teaching) Faculty Fellow at Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life at Tufts University (2022-2023) as well as a Faculty Fellow at the Equity and Inclusion Fellows Program at the Center for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT) at Tufts University. She was awarded the MacJannet Residency Program by the Office of the Provost at Tufts University in 2023.
