The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Foundation announced today that Troy Conrad Therrien will join the institution as curator of architecture and digital initiatives, a new position.
Therrien has worked on exhibitions at the Berlage Institute, the Canadian Centre for Architecture, Columbia University, MoMA PS1, and the New Museum.
The museum’s press release says, “A major and immediate component of Therrien’s work will be related to the Guggenheim Helsinki Design Competition. His appointment follows the announcement of a record-breaking number of architectural submissions to the open and anonymous competition and the launch of the project’s popular, interactive, online gallery of entries. Therrien will help organize an exhibition of six shortlisted submissions to be held in Helsinki in the spring of 2015, and he will play a key role in developing and articulating the programmatic elements of the proposed museum.” Exciting!
