It was announced today that Stephanie Pereira will take over the post as director of the New Museum’s art, design, and technology incubator, NEW INC. The program’s fifth yearlong cycle begins in September.
Pereira—whose appointment follows a five-year run from outgoing inaugural director Julia Kaganskiy—spent six years working for the online platform Kickstarter, where she created an on-site residency program as well as PWL Camp, an annual weekend retreat.
“We are incredibly proud of the accomplishments of NEW INC led by Julia, our brilliant first director,” NEW INC’s cofounder, Lisa Phillips, said in a statement. “Stephanie’s creative business acumen, entrepreneurial spirit, and passion for community building will help shape the next chapter of growth for NEW INC.”
