In this episode of Stance we have visual arts, music, politics and film featuring Bobi Wine, the Ugandan politician and musician hoping to be the country's next president; Iranian visual artist Shirin Neshat guides us through her work culminating in her new exhibition, Land of Dreams. British singer Ghostpoet introduces his new album I Grow Tired But Dare Not Fall Asleep; and finally, we are off to Mexico with filmmaker Elizabeth Carroll who talks to us about her debut documentary Diana Kennedy: Nothing Fancy. It explores the life of this culinary legend and authority on Mexican cooking. As we all try to cope with the restrictions that COVID-19 has brought to our lives, Stance wondered if there was some kind of global commonality to be found in our experiences. We ask people from around the world to share their quarantine journals. We hear from Mumbai, Guadalajara, New York and Ulaanbaatar. Join the conversation @stancepodcast.com

Described as a ‘rock star’ of the art world on account of her many devoted fans, distinctive style and rebellious attitude, the Iranian-born, New York-dwelling artist, whose work in photography and film over the past 30 years has addressed questions of identity and displacement, female subjugation and the tension between reality and dreams, talks to host Danielle Radojcin at Frieze Los Angeles. She discusses her love of film, her thoughts on Iran and feminism, her ambivalence about positive discrimination in art in the wake of the #MeToo movement and her new upcoming film project, as well as her favourite spot to eat Iranian food in New York.

In Episode 20 of The Great Women Artists Podcast, Katy Hessel interviews the INCREDIBLE, internationally-acclaimed artist, Shirin Neshat. 

Born in 1957 in a small city in Iran, Neshat was 17 when she was sent to the United States to complete her education – first at a school in Southern California and then to Berkeley for her university education. However, due to the Islamic Revolution in 1979, she was prevented from returning to her country for close to 20 years, and although she studied art in college, it wasn’t until 1993 that she began to make art again. 

Known for her work in photography, film and video that delve into issues of gender, identity and politics in Muslim countries, Neshat focuses on the relationship bewteen the personal and the political in past and present. 

Her personal experiences as a Muslim woman in exile have particuarly informed her practice, and it is through the the medium of photography, film and video that she explores political structures that have shaped the history of Iran.

Having just been the subject of a major survey exhibition spanning 25 years worth of work at LA’s The Broad, Shirin has exhibited at museums internationally, including the Serpentine Gallery here in London, the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington DC, as well as a major retrospective at the Detroit Institute of Arts in 2013, and many more. https://www.thebroad.org/shirinneshat

In 1999, Neshat was awarded the Golden Lion Award, the First International Prize at the 48th Venice Biennale, and in 2009, directed her first feature-length film, Women Without Men, which received the Silver Lion Award for “Best Director” at the 66th Venice International Film Festival.

For those in London, an exhibition by Shirin Neshat, Titled “Land of Dreams”, which includes the UK premiere of her most recent body of work, is currently on view at Goodman Gallery (until 28 March). http://www.goodman-gallery.com/exhibitions/1081

George Mackay, star of BAFTA winning film 1917, talks about his latest, The True History of the Kelly Gang, inspired by Peter Carey's novel about Australia's most infamous outlaw, Ned Kelly.

Iranian artist Shirin Neshat discusses her new exhibition Land of Dreams, which explores the experience of minorities in Trump’s America, and the fractious relationship between Iran and the US through photography and film.

Earlier this month, Front Row announced our Risk List – the top ten riskiest artworks of the 21st Century. Jerry Springer - The Opera ranked 5th for its outrageous combination of trash TV with opera that garnered over 55,000 complaints when it was broadcast. Creator Richard Thomas talks about how attitudes to offence have changed since 2000, when the opera was first staged.

Episode No. 419 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.
