Guest of Honor
Internationally renowned for her conceptual photography, films,
and video installations, the exiled Iranian-American artist Shirin Neshat challenges the divide between the artist and social critic. Informed by her experiences, Neshat's work oscillates between the personal and universal, transcending
preconceptions of culture, nationality, ethnicity and gender. read more
Accession II, 1968 (1969)
“I like this work because from the outside it looks like a simple, metal box, but the interior is much more complex -- it's filled with thousands of short tubes that create an interesting texture. And this sculpture is even more impressive when you imagine the amount of time it took the artist to attach each tube by hand. I have the urge to touch it every time I see it.”
