Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum Names Amy Smith-Stewart Senior Curator

The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, Connecticut, has promoted Amy Smith-Stewart to senior curator. Since Smith-Stewart joined the institution as a curator in September 2013, she has worked on twenty-nine exhibitions and projects, including the first solo museum show of work by artist Eva LeWitt, which will open in October.

Prior to joining the Aldrich, Smith-Stewart founded an eponymous gallery, which operated out of a location on New York’s Lower East Side for two years and is now a roving curatorial project. She also held curatorial roles for the now-defunct Mary Boone Gallery, the Peter Norton Collection, and MoMA PS1, and taught at the School of the Visual Arts and the Sotheby’s Institute of Art.

“During her tenure at the Aldrich, Amy has organized incredible exhibitions that have brought deserving artists and bodies of work the attention they deserve—an undertaking at the heart of the museum’s mission,” said executive director Cybele Maylone. “I’m particularly delighted by the work she has done to bring women artists to the Aldrich, as evidenced by the three stellar shows she organized that are currently on view by Harmony Hammond, N. Dash, and Sara Cwynar.”
