Getty | Villa Council Presents: A Lecture by Artist & Filmmaker Shirin Neshat

May 15 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

For Shirin Neshat, art has always been a tool to frame her personal identity in parallel with socio-political, religious, and historical narratives. Shirin’s practice has evolved from her nomadic and political circumstances as an Iranian living in the West, engaging conceptual and visual strategies that reveal the duality of her existence. In this presentation, Neshat explores the influences she takes from Islamic and Persian art and architecture both ancient and contemporary, and shares her latest work Land of Dreams, an immigrant’s perspective on America, her adoptive country.
This event is both on Zoom and in-person.
