MoMA PS1 Appoints Ruba Katrib Curator

MoMA PS1 is pleased to announce the appointment of Ruba Katrib as Curator. In this role, she will organize exhibitions and programs at the museum, working closely with Chief Curator Peter Eleey. Ms. Katrib joins MoMA PS1 from SculptureCenter, where she has served as Curator since 2012. She will begin her new role on October 15.

“As a longtime admirer of Ruba’s work, I am thrilled that she is joining the museum,” noted Peter Eleey. “She is deeply engaged with artists here in New York and communities around the world, partnering closely with them to realize novel presentations of their work. As her inspired group shows suggest, she seeks connections between the conditions of life and the thicket of ideas and conversations that shape contemporary art, with a generosity that encourages audiences to share in her thinking,” Eleey continued.

MoMA PS1 Director Klaus Biesenbach adds, “Over the past five years, Ruba Katrib has organized a range of inventive and internationally acclaimed exhibitions for our fellow Long Island City institution, SculptureCenter. We look forward to having her distinctive and strong curatorial voice at MoMA PS1.”
