Nicholas Cullinan Appointed Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Met

Carol Vogel reports for the New York Times that Nicholas Cullinan, curator of international modern and contemporary art at Tate Modern in London, is joining the modern and contemporary art department at the Metropolitan Museum in New York. He follows his former colleague Sheena Wagstaff, the new chairwoman of modern and contemporary art at the Met; Wagstaff was formerly the chief curator at Tate Modern before she came to the Met in May. “Part of my remit here is to extend our global reach, which I did at the Tate, where Nick has been a key player,” Wagstaff told Vogel.
