Paul Schimmel’s departure from MOCA and the art world’s response

Paul Schimmel

News broke last week that chief curator Paul Schimmel is leaving LA’s Museum of Contemporary Art. It’s not clear whether he resigned or was fired. But it’s created a firestorm of discussion in the art world.

Joining KCRW’s Steve Chiotakis to discuss the news and what this says about the LA art world, and art funding in general, is art critic Hunter Drohojowska-Philp, and Mat Gleason, editor of the Coagula Arts Journal, who first broke this story on his blog.
