Joining John Baldessari, Catherine Opie and Barbara Kruger in a rush to the exit, Ed Ruscha, the last artist on LA MOCA’s board, resigned Monday. The troubled museum, pulled out of a financial hole by Eli Broad and resolutely headed towards a party-filled populist future, ousted noted curator Paul Schimmel a few weeks ago, starting the wave of protest resignations.
Wrong Museum Burning: Ruscha’s Exit Leaves No Artists on LA MOCA Board
by Bill Davenport July 18, 2012
The hive mind of Reddit has suggested the following as possible replacements for Opie, Ruscha, Kruger and Baldessari: Banksy, Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Matthew Barney, Marina Abromavic and/or Terry Richardson
Banksy wouldn’t show up.
I think Broad counts on the artist directors not showing up. (Banksy could send Mr Brainwash as his proxy, though.)
