"Shirin Neshat: I Will Greet the Sun Again" at The Broad



Artist Shirin Neshat discusses “Shirin Neshat: I Will Greet the Sun Again” her career spanning exhibition at the Broad Museum in Los Angeles. Neshat describes how the narratives and characters in her work, based on autobiographical references, are brought to life in combination with the poetic language that is used to shape and express those narratives.

“Shirin Neshat: I Will Greet the Sun Again” is the largest exhibition to date of Neshat’s approximately 30-year career. Taking its title from a poem by Iranian poet Forugh Farrokhzad, the exhibition (which presents over 230 photographs and eight immersive video installations works) offers a rare glimpse into the evolution of Neshat’s artistic journey as she explores topics of exile, displacement, and identity with beauty, dynamic formal invention, and poetic grace. Beginning with her early photograph series, “Women of Allah,” the exhibition also features iconic video works such as “Rapture,” “Turbulent,” and “Passage,” monumental photography installations including “The Book of Kings” and “The Home of My Eyes,” and “Land of Dreams,” a new, ambitious work encompassing a body of photographs and two videos that makes its global debut in the exhibition.

Since her first solo exhibition, at Franklin Furnace in New York in 1993, Neshat has been featured in solo exhibitions at the Whitney Museum of American Art (1998), the Art Institute of Chicago (1999), Dallas Museum of Art (2000), Kunsthalle Wien in Vienna (2000), National Museum of Contemporary Art in Athens (2001), Walker Art Center in Minneapolis (2002), Hamburger Bahnhof, Museum Für Gengewart in Berlin (2005), Stedelijk Museum (2006), and National Gallery of Iceland in Reykjevik (2008). She has also participated in the Venice Biennale (1995 and 1999), Austrian Triennial on Photography in Graz (1996), Biennale of Sydney (1996 and 2000), Johannesburg Biennale (1997), Istanbul Biennial (1998), Carnegie International (1999), Whitney Biennial (2000), Moving Pictures at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (2002), Documenta 11 (2002), ICP Triennial of Photography and Video at the International Center of Photography in New York (2003), and Lights Camera Action at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York (2007).
