But Price had no clue that a devastating earthquake was in progress. She was halfway around the world, shivering on the ice in Antarctica. Price had just conquered Vinson Massif, which at 16,067 feet is the highest spot on the continent of Antarctica. "It's minus-30, minus-40 all the time," Price recalled the other day from her home in Santa Monica.

Last year will go down in MOCA history as a tumultuous year of board resignations and criticism of the museum's leadership, but it will not be known as the year in which gifts to the museum dried up. The Museum of Contemporary Art reports that it has acquired a total of 117 pieces, through museum funds and gifts of artworks or money from donors, adding to a collection of more than 6,700 works. MOCA director Jeffrey Deitch singled out several as particularly significant: a 1980 installation donated by Mike Kelley, an original storyboard for Kenneth Anger's 1949 film "Puce Moment," a 1974-75 David Hammons body print, a 2012 gunpowder drawing by Cai Guo-Qiang (above)
