Today, the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, announced changes to its curatorial staff, with three curators taking on new roles and one curator being brought on to the team.
Among those already at the ICA, Jeffrey De Blois will become assistant curator, Ruth Erickson will become Mannion Family Curator, and Jessica Hong will become assistant curator. In addition to the new roles, Ellen Tani will join the museum as assistant curator, having last served as the Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Curatorial Fellow at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art in Brunswick, Maine.
“Ruth, Jeff, Jessica, and Ellen each bring unique skill sets, varied interests, enthusiasm and energy to the ICA, and they will all play a central role in shaping the museum’s future program,” Eva Respini, the ICA’s chief curator, said in a statement. “These four talented, bright, and creative individuals will no doubt carry forward ICA’s mission to be a laboratory for new ideas.”
The institution currently has on view exhibitions of work by Nicholas Nixon and Wangechi Mutu. Next month it will present “Art in the Age of the Internet, 1989 to Today,” organized by Respini alongside De Blois.
