What LA’s MoCA Needs From Its New Director

Christopher Knight: “What MOCA needed right now in the director’s office was a seasoned museum administrator, something it hasn’t had since Jimmy Carter was president. The fundamental lapse has been caused by the board of trustees’ faulty selection criteria, which are at the heart of the institution’s long-standing travails.

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.
