The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York, announced today that Isolde Brielmaier will be its curator-at-large. In her new position, which she begins this month, Brielmaier will oversee research projects and advise the museum as it makes new acquisitions.
Brielmaier is currently an assistant professor in New York University’s Department of Photography, Imaging, and Emerging Media, as well as director of arts and culture at Westfield World Trade Center in Manhattan. She has also held positions at the Guggenheim Museum, the New Museum, the SCAD Museum of Art, and Prospect 3 New Orleans.
“Isolde brings with her a deep knowledge of the art world, a global awareness, and strong scholarship that will be invaluable as we continue to grow our collection and expand our focus to include a broad range of artists and types of programming,” Ian Berry, the museum’s director, said in a statement. “We’re very excited to welcome Isolde to the Tang.”
