For the last 30 years, Shirin Neshat has used different media to explore complicated political realities, with a particular focus on Iran and America. Her videos, poetry and photos examine the borders and intersections of nation, gender, exile, and spirit. For the first time, Neshat has a new exhibit in the western United States. It’s at the Broad, and it’s called “I Will Greet the Sun Again.”
