Courtenay Finn Named Curator of Aspen Art Museum

The Aspen Art Museum has announced that Courtenay Finn will be serving as its new curator. Finn spent the last three years working as curator of New York nonprofit Art in General, where she oversaw exhibitions and a residency program, and pioneered the institution’s “What Now?” conference in collaboration with director Anne Barlow. She also curated Art in General’s first international new commission with Lebanese artist Mounira Al Solh and cocurated the Latvian Pavilion at the 55th Venice Biennale.

Finn’s not the only new hire over at the Aspen Art Museum: Michelle Dezember will also be joining the museum staff as learning director. In her new role, she’ll oversee all museum educational outreach and school and family programs, as well as public programming. She was previously deputy director for programming and special projects at Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art in Doha, Qatar.
