Beizar Aradini (b.1991) was born in Mardin, Kurdistan and immigrated with her family to Nashville, Tennessee in 1992. Her work unravels her family’s story as immigrants and examines cultural displacement through fiber practices that have been crucial to the Kurdish identity. Her work has been featured in exhibitions such Between the Seams at Woman's Made Gallery in Chicago and was a featured artist for Julia Martin Gallery's annual Bevy show in Nashville. Recently, in collaboration with The Frist Museum, Aradini was selected to create a piece that was inspired by a first-time voter and will be revealed in May 2020 as part of the We Count exhibition. Aradini has worked on many other community projects in Nashville, including murals and instructing art workshops at The Oasis Center and Nashville Healing Arts for Tennessee Mental Health Consumers’ Assoicaition.
