- MOCA, MOCA, MOCA: Christopher Knight on why pursuing MOCA is a good deal for LACMA and LATers Jori Finkel and Mike Boehm explain that there’s more support for LACMA’s bid now than there was in 2008.
- NYTer Carol Vogel tried to cover the story, which resulted in an epic 157-word correction explaining that Vogel got darn near everything wrong. In a related story, the NYT has made travel editor Danielle Mattoon the new culture editor. Seems pretty obvious where she oughta start.
- Bill Poundstone on MOCA’s online ‘keep us independent’ fundraising drive. (Check out the right-hand side of the page here.)
- In the NYT, Hilarie M. Sheets profiles Shinique Smith.
- In the San Francisco Chronicle, John King finds Leo Villareal’s design project for the Bay Bridge is mighty thin.
- Kenneth Baker offers up many smart takes on SFMOMA’s Garry Winogrand retrospective.
- Andrew Russeth profiles Mark Dion for the New York Observer.
- On the occasion of his Hammer retrospective, Carolina Miranda profiles Llyn Foulkes for NPR.
- In Nuvo, the Indianapolis alt-weekly, David Hoppe “wonders about the [Indianapolis Museum of Art's] continuing relevance in this community.” Smart take, especially after all the mere stenography the Indianapolis Star has fed its readers on the IMA cuts.
- On this week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast: Photographer and essayist Leo Rubinfien discusses the Garry Winogrand retrospective he curated for SFMOMA and Gary Simmons talks about his Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth “Focus” exhibition.
