Congratulations on your new position as the Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA). I was a MOCA staff member in the early years -- first as a member of the installation crew, then as bookstore manager -- and I have an enduring love for the place. You must be getting a lot of well-meaning advice right now, and I hope you won't mind if I offer you a few tips to aid you in your success. My advice is meant both to be helpful, but also to make you smile.
Here you go:
1: Keep the Frames
2: Cherish your curators
3: Los Angeles is not New York
4: Don't Underestimate the Broad
5: Street Art: Its been done…
6: Avoid the "Olive Garden" syndrome…
Good luck and welcome!
