Shirin Neshat Exhibition Lecture
The Bloomfield Township Public Library and The Detroit Institute of Arts are pleased to present a Shirin Neshat Exhibition Lecture on Wednesday, June 5 at 10a.m. at the Bloomfield Township Public Library.
Shirin Neshat, an Iranian American artist living in New York City, is widely acclaimed for her extraordinary video installations and photographs, yet her collected works are rarely considered as a singular production or displayed together. This mid-career retrospective includes eight video installations and two series of photography. Through visual metaphor and compelling sound, Neshat confronts the complexities of identity, gender and power to express her own vision that embraces the depth of Islamic tradition and Western concepts of individuality and liberty.
