The Wolfsonian at Florida International University has appointed Shoshana Resnikoff as curator, expanding its curatorial team to four. She will work directly with Wolfsonian’s associate director of curatorial and education Jon Mogul and her colleagues to reconceptualize the display of the museum’s permanent collection, organize special exhibitions, and create new avenues for research.
“Her deep interest in American art and material culture will strengthen our curatorial team, while her educational and curatorial background are truly an ideal fit for the vast and varied collection of the museum,” director Tim Rodgers said. “We look forward to her future exhibitions, which I am certain will convey her keen intelligence, remarkable training, and quick sense of humor.”
Prior to joining the institution, Resnikoff worked as an assistant curator for exhibitions and research at the Peabody Essex Museum in Massachusetts, a curatorial associate for the Terra Foundation for American Art, a collections fellow for the Cranbook Center for Collections and Research. Resnikoff specializes in American decorative arts and design and also been a part of two Google Cultural Institute collaborations.
