LOS ANGELES, CA.- The Executive Committee of the Board of Museum Associates, the non-profit that operates the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) has presented a plan to the Board of the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) outlining the terms of a proposed merger. The goal of this plan would be to
preserve the independence and integrity of both institutions while combining their operations and infrastructure. The proposal is non-binding.

Michael Govan, LACMA CEO and Wallis Annenberg Director said: "MOCA’s international reputation is richly deserved, having created one of the finest collections and programs of contemporary art in the world. The exhibition of its extraordinary permanent collection, the continuation of its renowned exhibition program, and its commitment to living artists are of paramount importance for the cultural life of Los Angeles. Our proposal is structured to achieve these goals."

Andrew Gordon, Chair of the Board of LACMA said: "A merger of Board leadership, including some of MOCA's founders and artists, could provide a unique platform for the preservation and growth of MOCA's programs, under MOCA's name, with expanded facilities, in combination with a strong director and management team already in place. Enhancing the legacy of MOCA's founders, we would anticipate the continuation of a robust exhibition program consistent with our commitment to operating the combined organization with a balanced budget.”

A merger would be constituted among the volunteer not-for-profit Boards and additional private funding sources, and would not involve financial support from Los Angeles County. MOCA's collection and programs would be exhibited at the Geffen Contemporary, and the Broad Contemporary Art Museum and Lynda and Stewart Resnick Exhibition Pavilion (currently under construction) at LACMA, with additional programs planned for the Grand Avenue site.
