Ana Janevski, an associate curator in the Department of Media and Performance Art at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, has been promoted to curator. She will play a major role in shaping the new-media and performance program planned for the institution’s $400 million expansion project, which will include exhibition spaces dedicated specifically to time-based work.
Janevski joined MoMA in 2011, and since then she’s organized a number of significant projects, including a performance of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s celebrated Work/Travail/Arbeid, 2015, and Yvonne Rainer’s The Concept of Dust, or How do you look when there’s nothing left to move?, 2015, as well as exhibitions by Akram Zaatari and Rabih Mroué. She was also the appointed curator for the Annenberg Research Residencies for Ralph Lemon and Trajal Harrell.
Janevski organized Boris Charmatz’s Musée de la danse: Three Collective Gestures in 2013 and edited the monograph Boris Charmatz (2017), part of the museum’s new “Modern Dance” book series. Additionally, in 2015, she led the acquisition of Simone Forti’s “Dance Constructions.”
