A conversation between author Donna Stein Korn and art advisor Dorothy Goldeen about Donna’s newest book, The Empress and I: How an Ancient Empire Collected, Rejected and Rediscovered Modern Art. The book was written to reflect Donna’s work to assemble a collection of contemporary art for a new Museum of Contemporary Art in Tehran, Iran under the auspices of the Imperial Empress Pahlavi, wife of the Shah of Iran. She writes about how she worked curatorial miracles through her connections with colleagues especially in the USA and with encouragement from the Shabanou and some obstacles from other government members.
