Ellen Tani, Andrew W. Mellon postdoctoral curatorial fellow, June Lei ’18, and Hailey Beaman ’18 discuss Shirin Neshat’s 2013 portraits Ghada andSayed in the context of the exhibition Art and Resolution, 1900 to Today,which explores how contemporary artists seek to illuminate or resolve political and social conflict. They will consider how the work of art itself can become a demonstration of peacekeeping, a weapon of protest, a means of mourning, a tool for describing identity, or a vision of an alternative to contemporary affairs.
