Neda Moridpour is an 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 dislocation, 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.

LOUDER THAN WORDS received the 2014 Women’s Caucus for Art International Honor Roll award. [P]Art Collective won the 1st prize in the Farhang Foundation Short Film Festival. 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, The Center for the Study of Political Graphics, and was recently exhibited in the Islamic Art Now II: Contemporary Art of the Middle East at the L.A. County Museum of Art (LACMA).

Moridpour is a Professor of the Practice at School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston at Tufts University and is currently a Tisch Faculty Fellow at Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life at Tufts University (2019-2020.)
