Scholar, educator, and regular Artforum contributor Tina Rivers Ryan has been appointed to the newly created position of assistant curator at Buffalo’s Albright-Knox Art Gallery. Ryan has worked at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the New Museum, MoMA PS1, and the ICA Boston. She has also taught courses on contemporary art at MoMA, Pratt Institute, and Columbia University.
Janne Sirén, the Peggy Pierce Elfvin Director of the Albright-Knox, said, “We are delighted to welcome Dr. Ryan to the Albright-Knox. A talented scholar and dynamic educator, she will be an integral member of our curatorial department. At the Albright-Knox we explore the art of our time globally while engaging our community in new and innovative ways. We are a small, highly motivated cross-disciplinary team and we immerse ourselves in collaborations with pioneering artists. Dr. Ryan will play an important role in our pursuit of excellence in all our endeavors.”
“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with and build upon the Albright-Knox’s permanent collection, which has long embraced the cutting edge, from the kineticism of the 1950s to the digital art of today,” stated Ryan.
