Sussan Deyhim, a renowned composer, singer, and performance artist who has collaborated on many of Neshat’s video works, has spent the last three years developing a multimedia project dedicated to the life and work of Farrough Farrokhzad, a leading feminist poet who had a profound influence on modern Iranian art and culture. A screening of Farrokhzad’s acclaimed documentary The House is Black, will be followed by a short talk by Deyhim, interview footage from 1963 between Farrokhzad and Bernardo Bertolucci, and a conversation with curator, Carol Huh.
