It was announced today that Kelly Shindler, Associate Curator at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, will be joining the Pew Center for Arts & Heritage in Philadelphia as senior specialist for exhibitions and public interpretation come September.
The Pew Center provides public art grants, fellowships, and programming to the Greater Philadelphia area. Shindler comes to the Center after five years with CAM, as well as many years as an independent curator. Notably, she served as the curator for the immensely successful survey exhibition “Dear Nemesis, Nicole Eisenman 1993–2013,” which was awarded the prize for the second-best monographic museum show in the country by the International Association of Art Critics United States section.
In a statement, Shindler said of the move:
It has been a tremendous honor to have contributed to CAM’s exhibition and publication program over the past five years. I am proud of what we have accomplished—from bringing the work of some of the most exciting and salient artists working today to St. Louis to sharing the incredible talents of the St. Louis art community with the world. It brings me great joy to have furthered CAM’s status as one of the preeminent kunsthalles in the United States.
