Book Description:
A look at the creative process of one of the most unique artists of her time. Internationally acclaimed photographer, videographer, and filmmaker Shirin Neshat first came to prominence in the mid 1990s when she exhibited her series Women of Allah, an extraordinary body of work exploring women in Islamic culture. Since then, the Iranian born artist has continued to explore difficult subjects: the boundaries between East and West, men and women, the sacred and the profane, exile and belonging. Her work is marked by graphic boldness and stirring imagery: photographs of women cloaked in black veils walking on the beach; videos of women and men in barren desert landscapes chanting; and room size split screen installations showing women and men praying in separate rooms in a mosque. Renowned art critic and historian Arthur Danto explores the entirety of the artist s rich and varied oeuvre, from the earliest photographs to her latest work, the film Women Without Men. Her first feature film, the work based on the novella of the same name that was banned in Iran has taken nearly seven years to complete. The book, for the first time, will feature the artist s working sketches and storyboard for her videos and films.
