Goodman Gallery presents Land of Dreams, the UK premiere of Shirin Neshat’s most recent body of work and the renowned artist’s first solo exhibition in London in two decades. The exhibition follows Neshat’s most extensive retrospective to date at The Broad in Los Angeles.
Essential to Neshat’s practice is her unique point of view. As a young adult, the artist experienced the Iranian Islamic revolution and the rise of radical Islam in the 1970s. Her position as an Iranian woman who has lived – in exile – in America since the 1990s has fueled a desire to bring nuance to dominant binary narratives, such as Islam versus Feminism.
Land of Dreams marks a pivot in Neshat’s gaze towards the “Western World” and opens the newest chapter in her practice. The exhibition comprises a portion of the 100+ photographic portraits and two video installations. For the first time, both mediums converge into one immersive experience to present a portrait of contemporary America under the Trump administration.
