MoMA names chief curator

September 04, 2008|Suzanne Muchnic

Ann Temkin, a curator at the Museum of Modern Art in New York for the last five years, has been promoted to the museum's most prestigious curatorial position: chief curator of painting and sculpture. She will succeed John Elderfield, who retired in July.

Temkin, who was educated at Harvard and Yale universities, began her career at MoMA in the mid-1980s and was a curator of modern and contemporary art at the Philadelphia Museum of Art from 1990 to 2003. In her new job, she will oversee her department's installations, acquisitions, exhibitions and other public programs.
