No. 419: Shirin Neshat, James Tissot

Episode No. 419 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features artist Shirin Neshat and curator Melissa E. Buron.

The Broad is exhibiting “Shirin Neshat: I Will Greet the Sun Again,” a career-spanning survey that places special emphasis on Neshat’s address of her home country of Iran and her 2010s turn toward addressing the United States and the ways in which the United States has come to resemble Neshat’s theocratic homeland. The exhibition was curated by Ed Schad and will remain on view through February 16, 2020. The excellent catalogue was published by The Broad and DelMonico Prestel. Amazon offers it for $45.

Neshat was previously a guest on The MAN Podcast in 2012 and 2013.

On the second segment, Melissa E. Buron discusses her exhibition “James Tissot: Fashion & Faith,” which is on view at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco. The exhibition examines Tissot’s career, his engagement with and distance from impressionism, his multi-national career, and his late-in-life turn toward Biblical subjects (in part to attract American patronage). The exhibition is on view through February 9, 2020. The beautifully designed, smart exhibition catalogue was published by the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and DelMonico Prestel. Amazon offers it for $49.

Air date: November 14, 2019.
