Join the Moody and artist Hayv Kahraman for the opening reception The Foreign in Us, on January 12, from 6 - 8 p.m. 

The artist’s first solo exhibition in Texas includes new and recent works informed by the artist’s Iraqi-Kurdish heritage and experience as a refugee while highlighting her research-driven practice. Through her profound imagery and investigation into the decolonization of the body and nature, Kahraman challenges fear and apprehension of otherness, advocating instead for compassion and acceptance.
