Banned in Iran

April 21, 2010

On Thursday, April 22, at 7pm, the MFA Art Criticism and Writing Department is presenting a talk by Iranian-born artist and filmmaker Shirin Neshat. She will discuss the transition of her work from still photography to video installation and, most recently, to feature-length film. Neshat’s directorial debut, Women Without Men, based on a novella by Shahrnush Parsipur that had been banned in Iran, received the Silver Lion Award for Best Director at the 2009 Venice Film Festival.

Neshat will be speaking at the SVA Theatre, 333 West 23rd Street. The event is part of the Art in the First Person series, and is free and open to the public.
