Clark Art Institute Appoints Robert Wiesenberger Associate Curator of Contemporary Projects

The Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts, announced today that Robert Wiesenberger was tapped for its newly created position of associate curator of contemporary projects. Wiesenberger currently works as a critic at the Yale School of Art in New Haven, Connecticut.

“The addition of Rob Wiesenberger to our curatorial team is an important reflection of our commitment to extending the Clark’s focus on contemporary art, and Rob will surely enhance the depth and diversity of our exhibition program,” said director Olivier Meslay.

Prior to joining Yale, Wiesenberger served as the Stefan Engelhorn curatorial fellow at the Harvard Art Museums, where he was responsible for the museums’ Bauhaus collections of more than 30,000 objects, from 2014 to 2016. He is also the coauthor of Muriel Cooper (MIT Press, 2017), the author of a forthcoming publication on Marcel Breuer (August Editions, 2018), and a contributing editor at Art Papers magazine.

Commenting on the position, Wiesenberger said, “In presenting newer work, I hope to develop exhibitions, programs, and publications that are generative for an existing and expanded set of visitors; for scholars in the graduate program, in residence, and in the wider community; and for living artists, for whom the Clark’s unique combination of resources might fire the imagination and support new work.”
