Elmhurst Art Museum Appoints Lal Bahcecioglu as Exhibitions Coordinator

Elmhurst Art Museum has announced that Lal Bahcecioglu will join the institution as exhibitions coordinator. In the newly created position, Bahcecioglu will collaborate with museum curators to organize the upcoming show “Kings and Queens: Pinball, Imagists and Chicago,” which will open in February 2017.

“Lal brings the most up-to-date knowledge of curatorial practice as well as expertise in architecture, which she studied in Vienna, making her a valuable team member in the restoration and interpretation of the cornerstone of EAM’s collection, Mies van der Rohe’s McCormick House,” executive director Jenny Gibbs said.

Originally from Istanbul, Lal Bahcecioglu moved to New York in 2014 and is now based in Chicago. She earned her BA in architecture from Vienna University of Technology and her MA in curatorial practice from New York’s School of Visual Arts.
