The Allen Memorial Art Museum in Oberlin, Ohio, has named Andrea Gyorody its new assistant curator of modern and contemporary art. At the AMAM, Gyorody will be responsible for overseeing the museum’s collection of twentieth- and twenty-first-century works, assisting in the staging of exhibitions, organizing related programing, and acquiring new works for the collection. She will begin working at the museum on April 3.
Gyorody previously served as the assistant curator at the Robert Gore Rifkind Center for German Expressionist Studies at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. During her two and a half years at LACMA, Gyorody organized exhibitions of erotic prints and drawings from Germany and Austria; art created during the 1918–19 Communist revolution; and Jugendstil and Art Nouveau highlights from across LACMA’s collections. She also cowrote a forthcoming handbook on the Rifkind’s holdings. Gyorody is a Ph.D. candidate in art history at the University of California, Los Angeles, and a contributor to Artforum.
“My colleagues and I are so pleased to welcome Andrea Gyorody to Oberlin. Her experience in all aspects of museum work and her desire to robustly connect the AMAM’s collection of modern and contemporary art with socially engaged practices will ensure vibrant future programs and educational opportunities for Oberlin College students and the broader public,” the museum’s director Andria Derstine said.
