The latest work from the Iranian-born artist, who explores the sexual politics of the Middle East. Tala Madani has developed a practice centered on playful yet provocative representations of men depicting humorous scenarios as a comical reaction to the very real oppression women in the Middle East are facing. This book includes essays, her film work, and a conversation between Madani and artist A. L. Steiner. This catalogue is published on the occasion of the exhibition Tala Madani: First Light, organized by the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis by Kelly Shindler and for the MIT List Visual Arts Center by Henriette Huldisch.
