Time & Again

Share:
Iran has a history that is steeped in poetry, music and art, an identity that has spread far beyond its borders. Time & Again considers Iran’s potent history through the epic poem, the Shahnama. No matter what gender, generation, class, religion or political inclination, every single Persian knows about the Shahnama. It is a text that tells tales of warriors and kings, love and betrayals and that has lasted for thousands of years, the resonance of which remains. This podcast explores this text through the lens of the artists and scholars that feel inspired by it and appreciate how a work of art, a poem, is one of the bedrocks of Persian society.This podcast series is inspired by the exhibition In the Fields of Empty Days: The Intersection of Past and Present in Iranian Art, curated by Linda Komaroff, on view at LACMA from May 6 to September 9, 2018.Hosted by actor/comedian Maz Jobrani, and LACMA curator Linda Komaroff.
