MoMA Makes Two New Staff Appointments

The Museum of Modern Art announced today that it appointed Rob Baker as director of marketing and creative strategy, and Leah Dickerman as director of editorial and content strategy. They will assume their responsibilities heading MoMA’s creative team in October.

“I am delighted to welcome Rob, who brings to MoMA his formidable marketing and communications leadership experience, and congratulate Leah, who has been a thought leader, curator, and scholar, and will now apply those extraordinary talents in new and different ways,” MoMA director Glenn Lowry said. “They are both uniquely qualified for the vital roles they are about to play at MoMA as it looks to the future. Together they will provide leadership across the organization to develop a compelling strategy that is creative, thoughtful, and inclusive, and brings together voices within and from outside MoMA.”

With more than fourteen years of marketing experience, Baker comes to MoMA from Tate London, where he served as chief marketing officer. Dickerman has been a curator in MoMA’s Department of Painting and Sculpture since 2008. Projects she organized include “Robert Rauschenberg: Among Friends” (2017), “One-Way Ticket: Jacob Lawrence’s Migration Series and Other Visions of the Great Movement North” (2015–16), “Inventing Abstraction, 1910–1925” (2012–13), and “Diego Rivera: Murals for The Museum of Modern Art” (2011–12), among others.
