MOCA's chief curator is fired, what's next for the museum and LA's art scene?

LA’s Museum of Contemporary Art in downtown has fired its chief curator, Helen Molesworth. She was a big get for MOCA. She curated two of the museum’s most popular shows: a 35-year retrospective of American painter Kerry James Marshall, and another retrospective of Brazilian sculptor Anna Maria Maiolino. Also, architect Richard Meier is accused of sexual harassment by five women. He designed the Getty Center among many other buildings around the world. Now Meier’s taking a six-month leave of absence.
