Islamic Art Now: Contemporary Art of the Middle East

Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)

February 1 through December 31, 2015

LACMA's Art of the Middle East department has a pretty big contemporary collection, relative to encyclopedic museums. It's also pretty new, much of it acquired in the last seven years. This installation includes flashy photographs of bikers and musicians by Hassan Hajjaj and more subtle photographs of Iranian police women by Abbas Kowsari.
