Oriental Drag, Williams College Museum of Art, 2013

“Oriental Drag” was a two-hour durational performance at Williams College Museum of Art in Williamstown Massachusetts on November 21, 2013. Rah stood still and silently on a plinth while allowing spectators to play “dress up.” On a nearby table, there were various accessories including scarves, makeup and brushes, and a blonde wig. On a garment rack to the left of the performer, there were traditional Iranian clothes, a chador and casual wear. Rah allowed the viewer full access and complete control to her body and representation.
