It’s #MuseumWeek on Twitter! Today’s theme is #peopleMW, so we are highlighting our fearless leader, MOCA Director Philippe Vergne! Follow along on Twitter @mocalosangeles for the rest of the week!
@pvergne: “The one word that gives my generation such vexation is the one thing I think a museum should stand for—connoisseurship. The art world is dominated by galleries, art consultants, art fairs, and all this craziness. The role of the museum needs to be protected, not for the sake of the museum but for the sake of the artists.” #PhilippeVergne #JohnBaldessari #TheArtistsMuseum [photo from last year’s MOCA Gala by @stefaniekeenan]
