Shirin Neshat: Fervor and Turbulent

Two films by Iranian artist Shirin Neshat explore gender roles, relationships, and equality in her home country.

Patricia Nix: American Baroque

Deep Line Drawings by Carlos Luna

An artistic dissident who left Cuba in the 90s, Carlos Luna combines the influences and cultural heritages of his homes on the island, in Mexico, and finally in Miami to create a vibrant look at modern perceptions of Latin America.

Photography from the Bequest of Isadore and Kelly Friedman

This 10th anniversary reprise of the debut of the Friedman’s gift to the Museum exhibits dozens of iconic photographs by many of the 19th century’s most influential photographers. These include Eugène Atget, Bruno Braquehais, Margaret Bourke-White, Brassaï, Gustave Le Gray, Charles Marville, Edward Steichen and Josef Sudek.

Hope to see you at the Museum, Boca moms!
