The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) presents Islamic Art Now: Contemporary Art of the Middle East. The Largest holder of Middle Eastern art in the U.S., LACMA presents the first comprehensive exhibition on the contemporary art being produced by artists from or with roots in the Islamic world today. Drawing inspiration from their own cultural traditions, these artists use techniques and incorporate imagery and ideas from earlier periods. As the first of a two-part exhibition program, Islamic Art Now features 25 works—including photography, sculpture, video, and installation—by 20 artists from Iran and the Arab world, including Wafaa Bilal, Lalla Essaydi, Hassan Hajjaj, Mona Hatoum, Susan Hefuna, Youssef Nabil, Shirin Neshat, and Mitra Tabrizian, among others.
