The Meadows Museum at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, has named Amanda Dotseth, currently a Meadows/Mellon/Prado postdoctoral fellow at the institution, as its new curator. She previously worked as an assistant curator at the museum, and she will assume her new role on September 19.
Dotseth is a scholar of art of the Spanish middle ages. She has co-curated exhibitions including “Zurbarán: Jacob and His Twelve Sons,” “Paintings from Auckland Castle,” and “Chillida in Dallas: De Música at the Meyerson,” and is an associated scholar for “The Medieval Treasury Across Frontiers and Generations,” a project funded by a Spanish National Grant. Additionally, she organized the first colloquium of current and former fellows at the Meadows Museum and a symposium on medieval Spanish art.
“I take pride in the long relationship I have had with the Meadows Museum and its staff,” Dotseth said in a statement. “I remain invested in the success of the institution, which, like me, has grown and diversified significantly since my tenure as assistant curator. . . . There is still much to be done, and so I welcome the opportunity to help shape the Meadows’s future.”
