Jarrett Gregory has been named a curator at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC. Gregory will work under the museum’s director, Melissa Chiu, and chief curator, Stéphane Aquin, and will be in charge of developing the museum’s international contemporary collection in addition to a schedule of exhibitions, special programs, and commissions.
“Jarrett has organized exhibitions of some of the most consequential international artists working today, including Pierre Huyghe and Stephen Prina, and we look forward to the experience and expertise she will bring to the Hirshhorn as the national museum of contemporary art,” said Chiu.
Prior to working at the Hirshhorn, Gregory was an associate curator of contemporary art at LACMA. She has also held curatorial positions at New York’s New Museum and Whitney Museum, and she has helped organize exhibitions on Dorothy Iannone, Lawrence Weiner, and Urs Fischer. Gregory is on the advisory board for the Gogova Foundation and Artist Residency in Baku, and the Lusanga International Research Center for Art and Economic Inequality. The Pierre Huyghe show she organized at LACMA was highlighted by Jack Bankowsky in Artforum’s December 2015 issue.
