MOCA: A Voice of Reason #2

with one comment

Among my friends, the conversation about MOCA has often gone to origins. For those of us who were around to witness MOCA’s beginnings, the museum was a real community effort. Artists were involved–as advisors and on the board. The opening of the Temporary Contemporary (now the Geffen) was a point when we realized it could happen.

MOCA, its formation and the original spirit are remembered so well by veteran journalist Barbara Isenberg in today’s Los Angeles Times.

I was so pleased to see this op-ed piece, becasue it mirrors the conversations that I have had with artists.
