Jeffrey Deitch formally informed the Museum of Contemporary Art board at today's meeting that he will be leaving as director. He will be around for awhile, however: Deitch "will stay on to ensure a smooth transition and the successful completion” of a campaign begun in March to boost MOCA’s endowment to $100 million, per the LA Times. The search committee for a new director will be headed by MOCA board members Maria Bell and David Johnson and former Los Angeles City Councilman Joel Wachs, president of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts in New York.
