Join us for a lecture and film screening with Sheida Soleimani, a 2015 graduate of the Cranbrook Academy of Art Photography department. Soleimani is an Iranian-American artist who is the daughter of political refugees that were persecuted by the Iranian government in the early 1980s. Her work melds sculpture, collage, film, and photography to highlight her critical perspectives on historical and contemporary socio-political occurrences in Iran and the Greater Middle East. She will deliver a lecture from 6-7pm, followed by a screening of her film Medium of Exchange from 7-7:40pm.

Sponsored by the Photography department and in collaboration with Library Street Collective. Soleimani will open the exhibition Medium of Exchange at Library Street Collective in Detroit on January 26.​
