Suzanne Cotter has been named the director of Luxembourg’s Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean, also known as MUDAM Luxembourg. She begins her new post on January 1, 2018.
Cotter has been the director of the Museum of Contemporary Art Serralves Foundation in Porto, Portugal, since 2013, where she has overseen a number of major exhibitions and projects by artists such as Theaster Gates, Wolfgang Tillmans, Julie Mehretu, and Monir Farmanfarmaian. As a curator at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation from 2010 to 2012, she helped develop the New York Guggenheim’s art program and led a curatorial team for the museum’s Abu Dhabi project. She was also the curator of the UAE’s Sharjah Biennial in 2011.
“We are delighted to welcome her to MUDAM Luxembourg,” said Princess Stéphanie, Hereditary Grand Duchess of Luxembourg. “The clarity of her vision, her tremendous experience in both Europe and the United States, as well as her international recognition, are all factors which I am sure will make her an excellent director.”
