Upcoming Exhibition at the Re: Art Show featuring Faculty Grahame Weinbren, current students, and alumni.

Guest Curated by faculty member Wardell Milan and alum, Melvin Harper. The works in ‘Haphazard Paradigm’ (the 14th edition of the Re: Art Show) look to question the deep cultural identities a person invests in race, gender, and nationality.

The Re: Art Show is an ever-evolving, recurrent, curatorial project spearheaded by alumni of the program Erin Davis and Max C Lee. Housed within the now-defunct portions of the former Pfizer Pharmaceutical factory in Brooklyn, Re: Art Show brings together an abnormally wide breadth of artists in an abnormal environment.

Meghdari has described her practice as a "passion to create driven by my bicultural background as an Iranian-American. My work is a reflection of culture as well as the self, pursuing distinct and obscure emotions in an attempt to create a narrative and connect with humanity."
