The Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis announced today that its chief curator, Jeffrey Uslip, has been additionally appointed to the newly created post of deputy director for exhibitions and programs. In his expanded role, Uslip will be working with the museum’s executive director, Lisa Melandri, to elevate the museum’s local and national standing.
Since joining CAM as chief curator in February of 2014, Uslip has organized shows with Hurvin Anderson, Joe Goode, Jesse Howard, Joyce Pensato, Lisa Yuskavage, Wyatt Kahn, Jon Rafman, Arcangelo Sassolino, Michael Staniak, and Liat Yossifor.
