“Iranian born artist/filmmaker Shirin Neshat’s early photographic works explored the question of gender in relation to Islamic fundamentalism and militancy. Her subsequent video installations have departed from overtly political content in favor of more poetic imagery and narratives. In her Regents’ Lecture, Neshat discusses the development of her artwork from photography to video installation to cinema and screen selections of her video based work.”
