Tala Madani in "Los Angeles" - Season 8 | Art21

Title:
Tala Madani in "Los Angeles" - Season 8 | Art21
Description:

Art21 proudly presents an artist segment, featuring Tala Madani, from the "Los Angeles" episode in the ninth season of the "Art in the Twenty-First Century" series.

"Los Angeles " premiered in September 2016 on PBS. Watch now on PBS and the PBS Video app: https://www.pbs.org/video/art-21-los-angeles/

Tala Madani skewers stereotypes in her sharply satirical paintings that evoke clashes of culture: men and women, the rational and the absurd, Western and non-Western.

Madani’s figurative paintings often feature a riotous cast of middle-aged men, balding and stocky, whose libidinal mayhem wreaks havoc on any situation the artist thrusts them into. Acerbic caricatures of both machismo and a childlike desire for mischief, the physical comedy at work in Madani’s paintings is anchored by intense pleasures, pathos, and a pervasive sense of violence. Madani’s pictures are also transformed into stop-motion animations where the artist photographs a freshly created scene over time—wet paint still glistening—resulting in stories of small calamities that are once hilarious, tender, and ghoulish.
