The MOCA 

Not to be confused with mokka

Mark Rothkos
  • Mark Rothko's "No. 301, 1959"
Oh, The Museum of Contemporary Art. It's on Grand Street in downtown LA, where lots of people don't seem to go, but should. It's 30 years old and to celebrate, has a huge, exhausting show.

A room of Rothkos. Several Pollocks, including the magnificent "Number 1, 1949". Judds, Flavins, Chamberlin (the three Muskateers of Marfa, pretty much). A room of Robert Irwins. Several works by Agnes Martin (born in Saskatchewan, and represented very nicely at the Dia:Beacon Museum).

Jackson Pollock's
  • Jackson Pollock's "Number 1, 1949"

For photographs, a room of Diane Arbus and a room of Nan Goldin among others. Too much for one visit. We were there on a Thursday evening, when it's free, and when we left, Frank Gehry's Disney Hall was there, next door, in the night like a ship from some finer planet.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
