The Los Angeles Times confirms that former Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art Curator Paul Schimmel will indeed join Hauser & Wirth at their new space in Los Angeles, set to open in 2015. You may recall that we had this scoop in March.

Mr. Schimmel has stepped down from his position as chairman of the Mike Kelley Foundation. The new gallery will be called Hauser Wirth & Schimmel.
