"For the last three weeks the Museum of Contemporary Art has been in an uproar over the resignation (some might say "ouster") of chief curator Paul Schimmel. Subsequently, four renowned artists who served on MOCA's board also resigned: Catherine Opie, Ed Ruscha, Barbara Kruger and John Baldessari.
On Friday, MOCA Director Jeffrey Deitch, who'd been largely silent publicly until now, posted a "Message From the Director" on the museum's website in which he seeks to offer reassurance about MOCA's financial and artistic stability and its future direction. The message came following a meeting Thursday night of MOCA's board of trustees."
