I really like the way Hannah Wilke uses abstracted femininity in White Plains, 1975. #MOCA

The Dan Flavin should have been in a room of its own. It’s ruining the experience with the other work. They look awful. #MOCA

Schimmel placed the John Chamberlain with the Robert Frank photos because they had the same feeling of a certain era. #MOCA

Schimmel: MOCA has one of the best collections of Rauschenberg Combines.

Schimmel loves the Kenny Price pieces as much as I do. One of the giants in LA & won’t be with us much longer. See his retro @LACMA in 2 yrs.

Schimmel: If you skip from Abstract Expressionism directly to Pop where would Alfred Jensen be? #MOCA

Schimmel: Don’t always look for the best work by an artist, but a work in which the artist finds themselves. #MOCA
