The Cleveland Museum of Art has promoted Emily Liebert, from associate curator of contemporary art to curator of contemporary art, the title which took when she joined the museum in 2017.

The director of the CMA, William M. Griswold, said in a release, “She is a terrific curator with a creative approach to making contemporary art accessible to a broad audience. Emily brings an exciting and collaborative vision for collecting and exhibiting global contemporary art at the CMA, and she is already at work on a number of compelling future projects. We very much look forward to Emily’s leadership.”

Before joining the CMA, Liebert worked at the Museum of Modern Art in New York as a curatorial assistant. She said in the same release, “Since arriving, I have greatly enjoyed getting to know the museum’s collections and communities, while working with such talented colleagues. I am looking forward to continued collaborations across museum departments as we offer a contemporary program that reflects and carries forward in time the expansive histories gathered in our encyclopedic collection.”
