Shirin Neshat is an Iranian visual artist who lives in New York City, and is known for her work in film, video, and photography. Neshat's early photographic works include the Women of Allah series (1993-1997), which explored the question of gender in relation to Islamic fundamentalism and militancy. Her 2009 feature debut, Women Without Men, received critical acclaim, and she has recently completed her second feature-length film, based on the life and art of the legendary Egyptian singer Oum Kulthum. Neshat has been recognized countless times for her work, from winning the International Award of the XLVIII Venice Biennale in 1999, to winning the Silver Lion for best director at the 66th Venice Film Festival in 2009, to being named Artist of the Decade by Huffington Post critic G. Roger Denson.
