In Amir H. Fallah’s first museum exhibition in Los Angeles, expect to get caught up in the artist’s maximalist paintings and stained glass works. Fallah is known for making “alternative” portraits — they don’t fixate on likeness but rather on the objects, textures and moods that one associates with a person, an approach partly informed by the artist’s experiences as an immigrant. The exhibition includes a fascinating archival display of Beautiful/Decay, the art and design magazine that the artist founded and edited between 1996 and 2013. Open Wednesday–Sunday, noon–5 p.m., through May 14, at 308 Charles E. Young Drive North, Los Angeles. fowler.ucla.edu
