Shirin NeshatMarch 20 - June 1, 2003
This exhibition offers visitors an unprecedented opportunity to experience in depth the work of celebrated Iranian-born artist Shirin Neshat. The exhibition features photographic work and six of Neshat’s internationally acclaimed video-and-sound environments, including Soliloquy, Pulse and Passage and the trilogy Turbulent, Rapture, and Fervor. Neshat’s powerfully cinematic images, combined with careful choreography and mesmerizing music, communicate universal ideas about how identity is shaped by differences in gender and culture.
Organized by the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal and curated by Paulette Gagnon. The American tour of the exhibition is sponsored by the Ministère de la Culture et des Communications du Québec. In Miami, the exhibition is supported by MAM’s Annual Exhibition Fund and coordinated by Curator Lorie Mertes. Additional support received from the Funding Arts Network.
