Q&A with interdisciplinary artist Mojdeh Rezaeipour

Q&A with interdisciplinary artist Mojdeh Rezaeipour

Mojdeh Rezaeipour is an Iranian-born interdisciplinary artist who works primarily in mixed media, installation, and film. Her recent research and creative projects are excavations of material memory at the intersection of her own story and a collective diasporic story. She is a graduate of University of California Berkeley, where she studied architecture, and of Alt*Div, an alternative divinity school centering healing justice and art as spiritual practice. Her practice is process-led and adaptive at its core, bridging over a decade of Mojdeh’s work in the world as an architect, storyteller, and community organizer. In the past few years, her exhibitions and stories have appeared in publications and broadcasts such as The Washington Post, Washingtonian, BmoreArt, DIRT, Image Journal, WPFW, and The Moth Radio Hour. Mojdeh has worked at award-winning architecture firms in San Francisco, New York and Tokyo, and has exhibited nationally and internationally in a wide range of venues from DIY project spaces in Berlin to museums such as The Phillips Collection. She is the recipient of numerous awards and fellowships, including The Studio Visit Fellowship at Takt Berlin (2018), Second Place at The Trawick Prize (2019), Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Fellowship (2020), The Nicholson Project Artist in Residence (2020), VisArts Studio Fellowship (2021) and a Wherewithal Research Grant (2021). Mojdeh is currently based in Washington, DC, where she is a Studio Fellow with Henry Luce III Center for Art and Religion at Wesley Theological Seminary.
