"Art as Activism: an Evening with Arya Badiyan"
Join Take PART on Thursday, April 15th, at 7:00 pm, for a presentation by artist and activist Ms. Arya Badiyan. Ms. Badiyan is a multi-disciplinary conceptual artist. Her most recent body of work explores American values, in light of a 400 year history that fails to uphold them.
“The purpose of this work is to facilitate healing from the diseases of racism, sexism and American exceptionalism,”
notes Ms. Badiyan. “Each piece cuts through oppositional consensus narratives, laying bare the truth and inviting reconciliation of the wrongs that stain our country’s past and present.”
Ms. Badiyan’s body of work includes the “Liberty” series, dealing with themes of systemic racism and the long legacy of America built upon the sacrifice of Black lives; “Heroes and Sheroes,” recasting the greatness of America through the inheritance of our forgotten ancestors; and “Taped,” documenting the history that stains our cherished values.
