LA’s MoCA Extends Reasons To Question Its Choices

If programming under new director Klaus Biesenbach continues to privilege male artists and spectacle, and the board continues to make decisions that appear more self- than public-serving, how does an art community assert its agency? In recent years, members of the Los Angeles artworld have tried to do just that, protesting decisions by MOCA directors that seemed insensitive to the lived experiences of vulnerable artists.

Grousing about Klaus: Is Biesenbach Right for MOCA?

Much as I try, I can’t muster great enthusiasm for the appointment of Klaus Biesenbach to the directorship of MOCA, Los Angeles … While ambivalent, I didn’t have any strong objections to his appointment (as I did with MOCA’s last two picks), until I read Robin Pogrebin’s report in the NY Times.

This Curator Had A Job Offer At MoMA’s PS1 – Until They Learned She Had A Baby

The curator was pregnant – visibly so – when she “continued to have face-to-face meetings, conversations and correspondence with Mr. Eleey and with Klaus Biesenbach, PS1’s director, according to the complaint. In fact, she says she saw Mr. Biesenbach just eight days before she gave birth to her first child, a son, in late July.” But later, he seemed shocked that she’d had a baby – and the job offer was soon off the table.
