Asian Art Boost

Alexandra Munroe has been named the “Samsung Senior Curator of Asian Art” at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. The Korean company is underwriting the position, in its first-ever endowment of a curatorial job. While positions named after individuals are common in the art world–Adam Weinberg is “The Alice Pratt Brown Director” of the Whitney Museum of American Art, for example–corporations have been slower to sign on.
