La Fabrica Galeria in Madrid will Show Work by Shirin Neshat

MADRID.- From February 4 and until March 20, La Fabrica Galeria presents the work by Shirin Neshat, who will show, at her first solo exhibition at La Fabrica Galeria, “Faezeh” (2008) and the serie “Games of Desire” (2009). Neshat’s work engages the viewer through powerful images, sweeping scores, and evocations of human passions and desires, while examining the social tropes that both stratify and unite. Neshat pitches these dialectics of East/West, man/woman, and oppressor /oppressed, to such a degree that these seemingly immutable polarities become malleable locations for query. In two new films and accompanying photographs, Neshat continues her exploration of Shahrnush Parsipur’s novel ‘Women Without Men’.
