Stop Telling Women to Smile

March 9, 6:00 PM


Tatyana Fazlalizadeh is a black/Iranian visual artist and Oklahoma City native. She is a painter whose work ranges from the gallery to the streets, using visual art to address the daily oppressive experiences of marginalized people through beautifully drawn and painted portraits. Her street art series, Stop Telling Women to Smile, can be found on walls across the globe. She is currently the inaugural public artist in residence for the New York City Commission on Human Rights, a year-long residency that will present the experiences of anti-black racism and sexual harassment experienced by New Yorkers through public art. During her talk, Fazlalizadeh will discuss her work and ways that the personal is political; the experiences of harassment at the intersections and layering of identities in public spaces; and how art plays a role in activism.

Sponsored by the Pugh Community Board. Tickets will be available in Pulver Pavilion during the lunch hours the week of March 2.
