Dallas Museum of Art Appoints Anna Katherine Brodbeck Senior Curator

The Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) announced today that Anna Katherine Brodbeck has been named senior curator of contemporary art. Brodbeck will oversee the institution’s contemporary art collection, programming, exhibitions, and scholarship.

Brodbeck first joined the museum as assistant curator of contemporary art in January 2017. In August 2018, she was promoted to associate curator. During her tenure at the DMA, she curated several exhibitions, including a forthcoming Jonas Wood show—the first major museum survey of his work, which opens on March 24—and a thematic group exhibition, titled “America Will Be!: Surveying the Contemporary Landscape,” that will primarily feature works from the DMA’s collection and will open in April.

“Over the past two years, I have had the opportunity to become immersed in our community and in our collection,” Brodbeck said. “We are privileged to enjoy tremendous support in building upon our already first-rate contemporary collection, addressing blind spots in art history while remaining at the cutting edge of recent developments in the field.”

Commenting on the appointment, DMA director Agustín Arteaga said, “Katherine’s leadership and contributions to the DMA have been exceptional, and it has been a true pleasure to collaborate with her in shaping the direction of contemporary art at the museum.”
