    Given her high-profile gallery career and participation in omnibus vehicles like the 2000 Whitney Biennial, it’s surprising that Shirin Neshat had, until now, yet to receive a major museum solo. All that has changed as six film installations and sixteen related photographs investigating the intensities of women’s lives in strict Islamic cultures are on view in Montreal. A catalogue with essays by curator Paulette Gagnon, critic Shoja Azari, and filmmaker Atom Egoyan is available.
