Rebecca Morse
Assistant Curator, MOCA – The Museum of Contemporary Art
Since 2001 she has flown solo on shows for filmmaker/photographer/provocateur Larry Clark, Aaron Siskind and Franz Klein (2001-2002), and Lee Friedlander (2002). Her biggest endeavor was the Lucian Freud exhibit (2003). From House to Home: Picturing Domesticity went up at MOCA’s Pacific Design Center exploring concepts of domesticity inside homes and out. MOCA at Cal Plaza saw Public Record, a showcase of recent additions to the museum’s photography collection. Also exhibited was Mid-Century Masterworks From the Collection, the pick of the litter from MOCA’s permanent 4,200-piece collection. Recent projects include Street Credibility, which she co-curated with artist Mike Kelley, and Lorna Simpson, whose 20 year survey she coordinated for MOCA. She is the curator of the recent exhibition Bill Owens: Suburbia as well as the forthcoming exhibition of the work of photographer Florian Maier-Aichen for June 2007.

Gabriel Ritter
Curatorial Assistant, MOCA – The Museum of Contemporary Art
His interest in art and technology is exemplified by his curation of “Out of the Ordinary: New Video from Japan” concurrently screening at the Getty Center and MOCA. This collaboration between the Getty Research Institute and Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, combines a survey of the early history of video art in Japan (1968-1988) with presentations of contemporary Japanese video art. Two programs at the Getty Center highlight a broad range of short videos, and four programs at the MOCA’s Silverscreen Theater at the Pacific Design Center focus on individual artists and larger themes within this rich and varied history. As part of this collaboration between MOCA and the Getty, each venue will present portions of both programs for a total of six nights.
