Today we had an interesting lecture about Shirin Neshat- an Iranian-American artist. I have seen this video so many times and it is very interesting on how a single spark in an artist's life can turn her entire career and vision around. For those who missed her visit to SCAD, here is the link on our wonderful SCAD's website.
Shirin Neshat on Campus - SCAD
She is constantly trying to prove that Iranian women are not hopeless and weak but they have been under so much pressure for so many years,from one dictator to another one, in addition to all kind of other cultural limitations that we need to understand their situation before judging them in anyway.
