The Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University in East Lansing announced today that Carla Acevedo-Yates has been hired as an assistant curator. Acevedo-Yates is from San Juan, Puerto Rico and will assist the museum in broadening its “international programming” and better position itself as a “center for interdisciplinary collaboration,” according to a press statement.

Last year Acevedo-Yates received a Creative Capital/Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant. Alongside her writing and criticism, Acevedo-Yates also curated a Ramapo Curatorial Prize-winning exhibition titled “Turn on the bright lights” at the Hessel Museum of Art at CCS Bard in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York.

The museum’s director, Marc-Olivier Wahler, said in a statment, “Carla brings a strong curatorial focus on the intersection of social justice and contemporary art, as well as a wealth of experience as a respected international curator and writer. We are delighted to welcome her to the Broad MSU.”
