Tina Kukielski Named Executive Director of ART21

ART21 has announced the appointment of Tina Kukielski as its new executive director. She will fill the position left empty by Susan Sollins, who founded and led the institution for seventeen years, and who passed away in 2014. Kukielski has held positions at the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Carnegie Museum of Art, where she co-curated the 2013 Carnegie International.

Currently preparing its eighth season of “Art in the Twenty-First Century,” ART21 has previously featured artists including Ai Weiwei, Joan Jonas, Tania Bruguera, Mark Bradford, and Pierre Huyghe. “Tina has a proven track record of building communities for art and she comes with experience working in the digital realm—the kind of experience we believe is essential to the ways we expect ART21 will grow,” said Migs Wright, ART21 board president emerita.
