Shirin Neshat in Conversation with Anne Pasternak


ICP Spotlights is an annual luncheon honoring women seminal in visual arts, using photography or film. This year, ICP presents the Spotlight Award to Shirin Neshat, an innovator using image to explore gender, society, politics and identity in the Arab world. Shirin will discuss her work with Anne Pasternak, president of the global public art nonprofit Creative Time.

The luncheon will also feature a special acknowledgment to Chuck Kelton.

Support raised through this event will benefit ICP education and exhibition programs.
