The Center of Contemporary Art Tel Aviv in Israel has named Nicola Trezzi its new director and chief curator. Sergio Edelsztein, the museum’s founding director, will oversee the center until Trezzi assumes his post at the beginning of 2018.
Trezzi is currently the head of the M.F.A. program at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem. In addition to having been a curator at the Prague Biennale Foundation, Trezzi has worked as an art journalist—he was U.S. editor at Flash Art International, and he has also contributed to Artnet News, Artpress, and Monopol.
In a statement, Edelsztein said, “After 20 years of growth, along which we grew form a tiny cultural operation to a vibrant institution leading the contemporary art scene in Israel, we find that Nicola Trezzi is the right person to take the CCA to the next stage, finding for it the right place in the international art scene and in the challenging local cultural and political reality.”
