Artist Laleh Mehran moved to the United States from Iran when she was a child in the 70s. Nearly 40 years later, she says she struggles with her cultural identity, a theme that often shows up in her art.
Mehran, who lives in Denver, is an associate professor in emergent digital practices at the University of Denver. As part of her work, she delves into themes such as dissent and exile -- even her own complicated relationship with politics, theology and science.
