With a reinstallation of its collection underway, the Art Gallery of Ontario in Canada has added four curators to its staff. Julie Crooks, Alexa Greist, Wanda Nanibush, and Caroline Shields have all been appointed assistant curators.
Crooks, Greist, Nanibush, and Shields will work in the museum’s photography, prints and drawings, Canadian and indigenous art, and European art departments, respectively. New and upcoming shows at the institution include a retrospective for the Canadian painter Rita Letendre and “Free Black North,” an exhibition of 19th-century photographs of black Ontarians.
The AGO’s director and CEO, Stephan Jost, said in a statement, “The four areas in which Alexa, Caroline, Julie, and Wanda will work are all central to the vision for the future of the AGO. Whether they are cornerstone collections, such as European or Canadian art, or growing areas of focus such as indigenous art or photography, each of them brings an exceptional and diverse range of experiences to their work here.”
