The New Museum announced today that Margot Norton has been promoted from associate curator to curator. Since joining the institution as assistant curator in 2011, Norton has curated and cocurated a number of exhibitions featuring artists such as Judith Bernstein, Pia Camil, Sarah Charlesworth, Ragnar Kjartansson, Chris Ofili, Laure Prouvost, Pipilotti Rist, and Erika Vogt. Most recently, Norton curated the exhibition “Kaari Upson: Good Thing You Are Not Alone,” which is on view through September 10, 2017.
