The Logic of Poetry and Dreams – Sholeh Wolpé and Sahba Motallebi
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.
In conjunction with Shirin Neshat: I Will Greet the Sun Again, and taking place in the exhibition galleries, poets and artists across a range of media and from varied backgrounds will read, perform, and reflect upon Neshat’s works, and delve into the universality of these very themes. Co-organized with independent literary curators Louise Steinman and Maureen Moore.
Free tickets can be booked in advance, and each event will have limited, walk-up admission on a first-come, first-served basis.
