Fahimeh Vahdat is a visual artist who fled her home country of Iran as the revolution erupted, emigrating to England and then to the United States in 1980. Her work, which includes paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures and performance art, highlights the universal refugee experience, human rights abuses (particularly against women and children in Iran and the Middle East), as well as issues of body politics, stereotypes, race, rituals, and beauty. Vahdat uses Islamic motifs, such as the lotus flower, as framing devices in her art, while calligraphic script creates background patterns that function as design elements. A lifelong artist and educator, Vahdat currently serves as the department chair of visual arts at Howard Community College in Columbia, Maryland.

Note: This exhibition opens one day later than communicated in our 2017-2018 Masterpiece Season brochure.
