The Museum of Contemporary Art has hired Johanna Burton, executive director of the Wexner Center for the Arts at the Ohio State University, to lead MOCA alongside Klaus Biesenbach, who shifts from director to artistic director.Biesenbach and Burton, whose title will be executive director, will co-run MOCA and both report to board chair Maria Seferian as part of a top-level restructuring.

“I’m excited to work closely with Klaus on visioning the next era of MOCA, listening closely to our staff and communities, while bringing the museum’s structures into ever-more vibrant alignment with the museum’s values,” Burton said in the announcement. Before joining the Wexner, Burton was director and curator of education and public engagement at New York’s New Museum, where she organized the 2017 exhibition “Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon.” Before that, she was director of the graduate program at Bard College’s Center for Curatorial Studies and associate director for the Whitney Museum of American Art’s Independent Study Program. She guest-curated the 2014 Hammer Museum exhibition “Take It or Leave It.”

Without a doubt, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LAMCA) is THE best must-see museums in Los Angeles, along with the Getty Museum. Built in 1910 by architect Renzo Piano, you will be sure to find a period, artist, or medium that suits you. With its 150,000 works, the LACMA contains paintings whose notoriety is well established: the famous “This is not a pipe” by René Magritte, the Great Wave by Kanagawaga from Hokusai, or Still Life with the Dish of cherries by Paul Cézanne. LACMA traces millions of years of art history, from prehistory to the present day.

Be careful, it is easy to get lost among the many collections! The museum is divided into five buildings, each dedicated to a particular art. Modern and contemporary art is concentrated in the Ahmanson Building. American, Latin American and pre-Columbian arts are brought together in the Art of the Americas Building. In the Hammer Building, you will find Korean and Chinese art, as well as Egyptian and Mesopotamian art. For the sculptures and ceramics of Japanese art, you will have to go to the Pavilion for Japanese Art. Finally, the Resnick Pavilion is dedicated to contemporary temporary exhibitions.

As the Museum of Contemporary Art prepares to reopen after a historic pandemic closure, it finds itself in the midst of restructuring, moving director Klaus Biesenbach into the role of artistic director and hiring an executive director to co-run the institution with him. But The Times has spoken with more than two dozen people including current and former MOCA employees, artists, curators and executives at other museums, and the majority were skeptical of the dual leadership model. Some said two cooks in the kitchen would inevitably lead to conflict; others questioned whether the unusual structure is something of a smokescreen — if, in fact, MOCA is demoting Biesenbach to a role similar to chief curator. Will the new executive director really be holding the reins at the institution, which has seen four directors in 13 years?“There’s something going on,” said artist Lari Pittman, who resigned from the MOCA board in 2018. “If someone’s doing a great job, you don’t reshuffle the job. But MOCA doesn’t have the luxury to fire anybody at that level right now. There’s a history of firing there — both chief curators and directors — and another major firing would not have gone over well. It’s the optics. Their only choice was to give him a new job description.”Others, however, said two directors would bring double the brain power to the museum’s leadership, and that Biesenbach’s new role played to his strengths.
