Going To The Moca

December 21, 1986

I visited the new Museum of Contemporary Art. The paintings are obviously there to make one think. I thunk the following:

Titian, John Singer Sargent, or Gully Jimson could do 8 or 10 paintings with the canvas used for each of many of them. Most of the exhibit is an argument for poverty: an artist who can't afford canvas is naturally more selective. I memorized some of them in five minutes. The Temporary Contemporary building is excellent.

Only paintings sprinkled by Peggy Guggenheim with water from the canals of Venice should be admitted until some improvement is shown. No relatives' paintings should be allowed.
