Marian Goodman Appoints Philipp Kaiser Chief Executive Director of Artists and Programs

Swiss art historian and curator Philipp Kaiser has been announced as Marian Goodman Gallery’s chief executive director of artists and programs, a newly developed role that will involve managing programming and strategy for all three of the gallery’s international locations (Paris, London, New York), beginning this month.
“Marian is one of the field’s greatest advocates of contemporary art and artists,” Kaiser said about joining the gallery. “Having worked closely with many of the gallery’s artists, I am thrilled to partner with Marian and her exceptional team.”
Kaiser was previously director of Cologne’s Museum Ludwig, where he oversaw a rehang of its permanent collection and organized public art projects with Louise Lawler, Barbara Kruger, and Gerhard Richter, among other artists. He was also a senior curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, where he organized exhibitions on land art and Jack Goldstein, and curated the Swiss pavilion for the Venice Biennale in 2016. Formerly, he was also the head of contemporary art at the Kunstmuseum Basel. Most recently, Kaiser organized exhibitions of work by Cindy Sherman for the Broad and by Jim Shaw for the Marciano Art Foundation as an independent curator in Los Angeles.
