If you missed Louise Bourgeois (Season 2) at the Guggenheim recently, your next opportunity to see the artist’s first major retrospective in 25 years will be at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MoCA), Los Angeles. The traveling exhibition opened this week and runs through January 25th.

Also opening this past Monday at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA), Chicago was Jenny Holzer’s PROTECT PROTECT.  The exhibition centers on the Season 4 artist’s signature electronic text works from the mid-1990s to the present. In addition, a series of her outdoor projections will also make an appearance on a number of notable Chicago buildings, including the Lyric Opera, Tribune Tower, and Merchandise Mart. PROTECT PROTECT ends February 1st.
