What We Teach

How can Art Education, using Contemporary Art as a tool, become a catalyst for critical thought— by reshaping ideas, instilling critical doubt in students?

Speaker: Yasi Alipour

Yasi Alipour is an Iranian artist/writer/educator based in New York. Her tactile works on paper uses folding to explore mathematics as a language, with all the historical, social, political, mortal, and embodied ramifications any language holds. Alipour currently lives in Brooklyn and wonders about paper, politics, and performance, probing personal history to parse issues around political instability and interrupted histories.
