Shirin Neshat, Passage Series, 2001.
The film installation Passage is in the collection of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York and the Museum of Modern Art, New York. It’s pretty easy to find parts (and more) of Passage on YouTube and on other sites, an archiving Neshat doesn’t exactly fight because she’s eager for her work to be seen in her native Iran.

This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features Iranian-American artist Shirin Neshat, who joins me to discuss the art she’s made in response to Iran’s Green Revolution and to the Arab Spring. An exhibition of that new work, titled "The Book of Kings," is on view at New York’s Barbara Gladstone Gallery through February 11.
