Shirin Neshat

Shirin Neshat Synopsis

Shirin Neshat by Arthur Coleman Danto

Shirin Neshat Press Reviews

Not only is this book filled with breathtaking imagery, commentary is included to get a better glimpse into the creative process of one of the most original artists of our time. Zinke Magazine [H]er eponymous new book is anything but simplistic; Shirin Neshat chronicles the artist's exploration of complex themes such as exile and the role of gender within Islam. National Public Radio [A] handsome and provocative monograph...a powerful and moving group of artistic snapshots that undoubtedly will make readers interested in viewing the original film and video works in their transcendent and spiritually absolute glory. Shirin Neshat's work has never been afraid of tackling the binaries pulling us in opposite directions, whether they be tensions between East and West, men and women, faith and reason.
