Leila Pazooki's great work demonstrates the difficulty of translating cultures using Western stereotypes. Moments of Glory exposes the too-easy comparisons that are made between some of the greatest names in Western art history and artists from Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. Could an Iranian Jeff Koons, a Dali from Bali, or even a Renoir from South Africa be discovered as a result? Pazooki's work's satire effectively challenges the media's perspective of non-Western artists.
