Barbara Kruger and Catherine Opie resign from MOCA board

“In another vote of no-confidence in the current direction of the Museum of Contemporary Art, prominent Los Angeles artists Barbara Kruger and Catherine Opie have resigned from the museum board. John Baldessari left Thursday, making Ed Ruscha the only remaining artist-trustee on the MOCA board. The resignations follow the recent ousting of chief curator Paul Schimmel, who had closely shaped MOCA’s exhibition program until gallery owner Jeffrey Deitch was hired two years ago as museum director.” Source: Jori Finkel, Los Angeles Times, July 14, 2012.
