The Bronx Museum of the Arts has named Klaudio Rodriguez, formerly the curator at the Frost Art Museum at Florida International University in Miami, as its new deputy director. Rodriguez will be responsible for assisting in the management of staff and the implementation of the museum’s exhibitions and public programming.
During his tenure at the Frost Art Museum, Rodriguez worked closely with the museum’s director and development office to build membership, develop new revenue sources, and fundraise. He also helped organize exhibitions of Uruguayan art, South American geometric abstraction, and video works by women artists, as well as “Narciso Rodriguez: An Exercise in Minimalism” (2016–17). Additionally, Rodriguez serves on the diversity and mentoring committees of the Association of Art Museum Curators and recently participated in the Getty Leadership Institute.
“I am thrilled that Klaudio is joining the Bronx Museum as deputy director,” noted executive director Holly Block. “The experience and expertise he brings will result in thought-provoking exhibitions and programs of local, national, and international significance, as well as new ways to more deeply engage with our community.”
