ALLEGORIES OF FLIGHT AT THE BROAD

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 Saint Abdullah 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.”*
