Gladstone Gallery presents LAND OF DREAMS, a new body of work by Shirin Neshat.
Comprised of more than 100 photographs and a two-channel film installation, LAND OFDREAMS marks a significant visual and conceptual shift for the artist, who has turned her lens to the landscape and people of the American West. For this exhibition, Neshat will present the entire collection of photographs from this series as well as both films, which will be complemented by an online viewing room and virtual screenings throughout the show’s run.*
Over 100 artists and estates have donated works for a fundraiser supporting Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.* Presented on Platform.art—an initiative developed by David Zwirner—participating galleries include Regen Projects, Jack Shainman, Gladstone, Lehmann Maupin, Petzel, and MarianGoodman, as well as Gemini G.E.L.
Following a virtual kickoff earlier this week with vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris, Carrie Mae Weems, and Catherine Opie, the sale is now live. See link below for details.

Investigating themes that define and inform the work of Shirin Neshat, the Broad presents ALLEGORIES OF FLIGHT, an evening of music, readings, and performance in conjunction with the exhibition Shirin Neshat: I Will Greet the Sun Again, now in its final weeks.
The evening—organized with independent literary curators Louise Steinman and Maureen Moore—begins with a performance by musician brothers SaintAbdullah in the lobby and poetry readings by Naomi Shihab Nye and Natalie Diaz in Oculus Hall (with a poetry encore at the end of the event).
Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors will debut a specially commissioned performance work, and Davia Spain will close the evening with a live music set, “touching on themes including trans experience and institutions and systems designed to suppress ancient, ancestral knowledge.”*
Recognizing the ongoing threat to reproductive rights in the United States, ABORTION IS NORMAL—sponsored by the Downtown for DemocracyIndependent Expenditure Committee—is an “emergency art exhibition curated by Jasmine Wahi and RebeccaPauline Jampol and organized by Marilyn Minter, Gina Nanni, Laurie Simmons, and Sandy Tait.”*
Part 2 of the show opens this week at Arsenal Contemporary in Manhattan.
