3 Comments · Wednesday, August 8, 2012
An interesting battle about the future of contemporary art — and what should be shown in museums devoted to it — is occurring in Los Angeles right now, where the director of the Museum of Contemporary Art is accused of leaning too heavily on pop culture/celebrity trendiness for his shows.

Hanni El Khatib’s world is a dangerous place. The San Francisco-raised Los Angeles resident prefers to fill his musical terrain with outlaw characters and disastrous circumstances.

One prime case in point is Mason-based Cintas Corp.
