Painting by Orkideh Torabi
Join us as we welcome artist Orkideh Torabi to campus, immediately following her 5:30pm Special Stamps Lecture at Rackham Amphitheatre.

Orkideh Torabi was born in Tehran and earned her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2016 and she received her MA and BFA from The University of Art in Tehran. Through her vibrant and intricate paintings, Torabi challenges traditional notions of femininity, power dynamics, and identity. Her unique artistic style blends elements of Persian miniature painting with contemporary imagery, blurring the boundaries between the past and the present.

Orkideh Torabi is the 2023 Jean Yokes Woodhead Visting Fellow at the Institute for the Humanities. This event is part of the LSA's fall 2023 Arts & Resistance theme semester.
