Artist John Baldessari announced that he is stepping down from the Museum of Contemporary Art's board of trustees. He is the fifth member to leave since February. Baldessari’s departure also comes after the museum’s chief curator, Paul Schimmel, announced he was leaving after 22 years. We talk with Hunter Drohojowska-Philp about the future of the museum.
