The Broad holds a special event tonight – The Logic of Poetry and Dreams – Carolina Rivera Escamilla. For millennia, poetry and literature have been at the heart of Persian culture and identity, forming the foundation for much of Shirin Neshat’s practice. Emerging from the work of poets and writers from Rumi to Forugh Farrokhzad and from Attar to Shahrnush Parsipur are themes including mysticism, metaphor, exile, politics, the natural world, feminism, and intimacy, all of which are reflected in Neshat’s films and photographs.
