Leila Taghinia-Milani Heller, LTMH Gallery



Host Marisa Mazria-Katz speaks with Leila Taghinia-Milani Heller, founder of New York's LTMH Gallery, one of the only galleries in the US that has devoted nearly its entire repertoire to Middle Eastern artists. In 2009, Heller helped organized Iran Inside Out, one of the biggest exhibits of Iranian art in the US, at New York's Chelsea Art Museum. This year alone she has mounted five exhibits, each of which has focused on the work of artists from Iran, Turkey and Iraq, at home or in exile. Heller discusses her transition from life in her native Iran to working in the New York art world after the 1979 Iranian Revolution, and speaks to art's vibrant and integral part of life in Iran (23 minutes).
