MOCA Loses Another Curator As Rebecca Morse Heads To LACMA

The brain drain continues: Rebecca Morse is leaving her job as associate curator at MOCA for a post with the same title within LACMA's photography department. She will start her new position on Feb. 1, replacing Edward Robinson and reporting to photography head Britt Salvesen.

Her departure leaves only two curators at MOCA (Alma Ruiz and Bennett Simpson), down from a high of seven curators in early 2009. That year the museum implemented various cost-cutting measures and layoffs, following a financial crisis and bailout by trustee Eli Broad.
