1. In her fifth solo exhibit at New York's Gladstone Gallery, artist Shirin Neshat sets up her first ever photo installation. The exhibition, she explains in an interview with VOA Persian TV's Behnam Nateghi, is about power and people's relationship to power, which she sees as the essence of Firdowsi's epic poem The Book of Kings. In 60 black and white portraits covered with calligraphy, selections of modern poetry, stories and memoirs of Iranian prisoners, Ms. Neshat presents the relationship to power in three sections: suffering but silent public, the activists and the powerful.
