The Getty Research Institute (GRI) in Los Angeles has appointed Pietro Rigolo as its assistant curator of modern and contemporary collections. Since 2013, Rigolo has worked with the GRI as an expert on a team of researchers overseeing the archive of curator Harald Szeemann.

Glenn Phillips, the GRI’s curator and head of modern and contemporary collections, said in a statement, “Pietro Rigolo brings a wonderful breadth of knowledge, not only about the history of art in the 20th and 21st centuries, but also about the history of curating and the rich intellectual histories that so often surround major artistic movements.” 

Rigolo added, “I am looking forward to joining my colleagues in implementing and diversifying our collections, envisaging new ways to present such relevant holdings, produce new knowledge, and engage our global public of researchers, students, and local communities throughout Southern California.”
