June 26, 2019


Kate Fowle has been appointed Director of MoMA PS1, it was announced today by Agnes Gund, Chairman of the Board of MoMA PS1, and Glenn D. Lowry, The David Rockefeller Director of The Museum of Modern Art. Ms. Fowle, until recently the Chief Curator at Garage Museum of Contemporary Art, Moscow, Russia, and currently director-at-large at Independent Curators International (ICI) in New York, succeeds Klaus Biesenbach, who departed MoMA PS1 in October 2018 to lead The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. Ms. Fowle will assume her new role as Director of MoMA PS1 on September 3. Founded in Long Island City, Queens, in 1976 as the P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, MoMA PS1 was the first nonprofit arts center in the United States devoted solely to contemporary art, and its merger in 2000 with The Museum of Modern Art created the largest platform for contemporary art in the country and one of the largest in the world.
