The Dallas Contemporary has named Alison Gingeras as its new adjunct curator and Justine Ludwig as its new director of exhibitions and senior curator.

“Justine comes to Dallas Contemporary with an expansive international background and a curatorial insight to new artistic visions and ideas,” Executive Director Peter Doroshenko said in a statement.  “Her future projects will further strengthen our seminal exhibitions and expand our role as a leading museum for contemporary art.”

“It is important to keep a global view of the world, and Alison with her diverse experience will play an important and strategic role in our curatorial vision for the future,” he added.

Gingeras has served in a number of high-profile roles, and curated a number of high-profile shows around the world. She has served as chief curator of Palazzo Grassi, always a sure stop for Venice Biennale visitors, as well as curator of contemporary art at the Centre Pompidou. (She also happens to be married to the artist Piotr Uklanski, who recently had a show at the Dallas Contemporary.)

Ludwig has worked with the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Rose Art Museum, the Colby College Museum of Art, the MIT List Visual Arts Center, and the Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati, most recently.
