Ed Ruscha, Smash, 1964
Sent to MOCA director Jeffrey Deitch on July 15:
I hereby submit my resignation from the position I occupy on the Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles, Board of Trustees. My defection may look obvious, but it will be all the better for the museum, which is on a course different than I imagined, but one I hope to support in the future.
This whole story is so troubling.
