A Curator at Tate Britain Leaves for Serpentine Galleries

Lizzie Carey-Thomas, currently curator of contemporary British art at Tate Britain, has been appointed head of programs at the Serpentine Galleries. From 2002 through 2012 she cocurated the “Art Now” series at the Tate, organizing shows by Mark Titchner, Ian Kiaer, Christina Mackie, Ed Atkins, and Pablo Bronstein. Lead curator of the Turner Prize since 2002, she’s contributed to jury deliberations, and also oversaw the exhibition “Turner Prize: A Retrospective” in 2007, which toured to the Mori Art Museum.

The Serpentine’s director, Julia Peyton-Jones, and codirector, Hans Ulrich Obrist, said of Carey-Thomas: “Her experience as a curator and a commissioner of new work, together with her work with emerging artists, ensures that she will make a major contribution to the Serpentine’s programs.”
