Hassan Sharif is included in a group exhibition, Long Story Short at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, California. 

The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles's press release follows: 

Long Story Short presents artworks dating from the 1940s to the present day, drawn from MOCA’s world-renowned, ever-growing collection of more than 7,500 objects. It demonstrates the myriad ways contemporary artists have addressed aesthetic, political, and philosophical concerns in the last seventy-five years, whether by innovating new forms of abstract art, commemorating loves and losses, rethinking the conventions of portraiture, or challenging the secondary status of craft. By exhibiting artworks that are widely regarded as hallmarks of the museum’s collection alongside lesser-known pieces, recent acquisitions, and artworks that have never previously been on view at MOCA, Long Story Short reminds us that art history, and history more broadly, is made in the present.

Long Story Short is organized by Anna Katz, Curator, with Paula Kroll, Curatorial Assistant, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
