Another interesting lecture this week comes from Shirin Neshat as part of the Kodak lecture series at Ryerson. Neshat, an Iranian expat living in the U.S., makes gorgeous and emotional photographic and film works that examine Islamic society in Iran, raising questions about, among other things, gender roles.
