Description:

Co-presented with The Broad museum
The Un-Private Collection: Artist as Activist
Shirin Neshat

In conversation with Christy MacLear, Executive Director, Robert Rauschenberg Foundation

World-renowned visual artist and filmmaker Shirin Neshat’s provocative yet poetic work addresses issues of social repression among women, in her native Iran and beyond. Through haunting allegory and imagery, she portrays women as complex individuals with desires and ambitions, who move between intense private feelings and public life. Reaching beyond her own identity, Neshat also addresses broader concerns about cultural beliefs and the power of the erotic.
