Fionn Meade Appointed Senior Curator at the Walker Art Center

Fionn Meade has been appointed senior curator of cross-disciplinary platforms at the Walker Art Center. Meade is currently a curator, writer, and faculty member at the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College and Columbia University. In addition to his new role he will also serve as interim head of the Walker’s visual art department while a search continues for a permanent leader. Said director Olga Viso: “Fionn’s diverse curatorial experience working in the arenas of film, performance, and museum practice makes him uniquely qualified to take on this new curatorial role at the Walker.” Simultaneously, Isla Leaver-Yap has been named Bentson visiting film scholar, a new position which assesses the holdings and expands scholarship of the Ruben/Bentson Film and Video Collection with its core of avant-garde films from the period of 1943 to 1985.
