Museum of Photographic Arts MOPA

February 21 through September 13, 2015

About  6,000 people from 84 countries were asked 45 questions, and now these many videos will show at MOPA, though because there are so many, different videos that address certain "themes" will play during different months. February, March and April are all about love, war and meaning in life.

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.
