The Chapel of the Mosquitoes: José Oubrerie architecture and paintings | Open now until March 26, recommended by Alexander Walter
The José Oubrerie exhibition at the SCI-Arc Kappe Library is entering its home stretch before it closes on March 26. Chapel of Mosquitoes investigates two key works by the French-born American architect: the 1986 French Cultural Center in Damascus and the 1992 Miller House in Lexington, Kentucky.
Labor and Photography | Opening on March 18, recommended by Nicholas Korody

How artists depict labor suggests much about both the conditions of work in any given era, and the social context supporting and enframing them. LACMA has organized a display of fourteen photographic depictions of labor on view starting on the 18th. Check it out!
