The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles presents Tala Madani: Biscuits the first North American survey of Iranian-born artist’s paintings and animations. Bringing together fifteen years of the artist’s incisive work, the exhibition will highlight the often-absurd socio-cultural dynamics enacted within Madani’s art and, more broadly, the potent and combustible relationship between art history and global history. Madani’s paintings and animations are powerful meditations on the potential for art to reflect the deeply-seated cultural fears, conflicts, and desires of our present day. Rich in narrative and heavy in irony, they elicit curiosity, fantasy, and repulsion.
Tala Madani: Biscuits is organized by Rebecca Lowery, Associate Curator, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and Ali Subotnick, Guest Curator through the MOCA Ahmanson Curatorial Fellowship, with Paula Kroll, Curatorial Assistant, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
