Speed Art Museum Names Miranda Lash Curator of Contemporary Art

The Speed Art Museum has named Miranda Lash as curator of contemporary art, a move that anticipates the institution’s reopening in the spring of 2016. Lash is currently curator of modern and contemporary art at the New Orleans Museum of Art, a position she has held since 2008. During her tenure, she organized exhibitions by artists including Rashaad Newsome and Katie Holten, and produced the first solo museum exhibition in the United States of Camille Henrot. Said chief curator Scott Erbes: “I am thrilled to have Miranda join the Speed’s curatorial team and the Louisville community. Her many talents will energize the Speed’s new galleries for contemporary art, the museum’s Art Park, and our exhibition program. Miranda’s curatorial practice also reveals a deep commitment to making meaningful connections between artists and local communities; I know she looks forward to engaging with Louisville’s vibrant contemporary art community.” Lash will begin in her new role this August.
