Time Out says

For some of us, Shirin Neshat's first UK solo show in over two decades is the exhibition of our dreams. Handily, it's also named 'Land of Dreams' and contains the Iranian-born artist's latest series of photographic portraits and two video installations. In them, Neshat turns her attention to the bizarre new world of Trump's America, including its attitude towards immigrants like herself. One part of the series takes the form of a mass photographic project showing the many, many identities of people living in the US. After being printed, the photos are inscribed with Farsi calligraphy.
