Andrea Lissoni Appointed Film Curator at Tate Modern

The Tate Modern, London, has announced that Andrea Lissoni has been appointed its film and international art curator, reports Artdaily. Lissoni will maintain his current role as curator of Pirelli HangarBicocca, where he has, since 2011, organized exhibitions on the works of Wilfredo Prieto, Tomás Saraceno, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Mike Kelley, and Ragnar Kjartansson, among others. “The two posts will allow me to contribute both to the activities of one of the most prestigious institutions in the world of art and to those of an Italian institution,” he said, “which, partly as a result of its international outlook, I am proud to say has become a leading player in Italy and abroad.” Lissoni begins his new position in March 2014.
