Tala Madani in "Los Angeles"Preview

In this preview from the Los Angeles episode of Season 8 of Art in the Twenty-First Century, artist Tala Madani reflects on her background and how it informs the ways her work is perceived.

“I think there is a proclivity for people to read into the figures as from Iran,” says the Tehran-born artist, who moved to Oregon as a teenager, of her paintings. “If I was a Mexican artist, the audience would read them as Mexican men.”
