Earlier in the year I posted on LACMA’s showcase of their newly acquired Islamic works. The post referred to Part 1 of the exhibition. LACMA recently showcased Part 2 which included a works in a variety of media from installation, to sculpture, to photography to video. These were some works that I found particularly intriguing.
