The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles has made two recent curatorial hires: Amanda Hunt, who will now be the museum’s director of education and public programs, and Anna Katz, who will be an assistant curator. Hunt began her position on March 1, while Katz, who is currently a curatorial fellow at the museum, starts hers on May 1.
Hunt was previously an associate curator at New York’s Studio Museum in Harlem, where she organized shows about Rashaad Newsome and Lorraine O’Grady. She has also worked on Pacific Standard Time’s performance and public art festival and the Hammer Museum’s 2012 Made in L.A. biennial.
Katz has been a curatorial fellow at MOCA since 2015. She has worked on recent shows at the museum devoted to Doug Aitken, Carl Andre, and Catherine Opie.
Helen Molesworth, MOCA’s chief curator, said in a statement that Hunt and Katz “share a keen commitment to history; to the pressing social causes of our current moment; a belief in the knowledge produced by artists; and a commitment to making all of the above available to the general public.”
