Shirin Neshat, an Iranian American artist living in New York City, is widely acclaimed for her extraordinary video installations and art 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. This catalogue, which accompanies a mid-career retrospective at the Detroit Institute of Arts, includes insightful essays on her work and in-depth treatment of eight video installations and two series of art photography.
