The Broad Museum in Los Angeles announced it will hold a major survey show for Shirin Neshat in 2019.

That latter series of films also form the basis of Neshat’s solo exhibition at the Neuer Kunstverein Wien in Vienna, Austria (12 September – 13 October). While the British Museum celebrates Neshat’s contribution to contemporary art by screening her feature length film, Looking for Oum Kulthum (30 September).
