Beizar Aradini’s diptych My Existence is Political represents the vast amount of expressive freedom afforded to those with citizenship. The work features an embroidered portrait of her friend Drenusha Kolshi, a refugee and now-naturalized citizen, paired with a poem by Kolshi. Join us for a virtual gathering with the artist, Kolshi, and Shaun Giles, assistant director of community engagement, to hear more about Aradini’s work in We Count: First-Time Voters.

This program will be presented on Zoom.
