SculptureCenter Names Ruba Katrib Curator

Ms. Katrib. (Patrick McMullan Company)

Ruba Katrib, associate curator of the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, has been tapped by Long Island City’s SculptureCenter as its new curator. Ms. Katrib replaces Fionn Meade, whose tenure ended last year; she starts work Feb. 15. (Artists, begin lobbying for studio visits now.)

At MOCA, North Miami, Ms. Katrib organized solo exhibitions with Cory Arcangel and French duo Claire Fontaine, as well as starting “performance and workshop programs.” She’s now at work on a conference to toast the 20th anniversary of Bard’s Center for Curatorial Studies, from which she holds a master’s.

In other SculptureCenter news, the 84-year-old institution just launched a Tumblr account, and the kunsthalle now has on view a two-person show with Lucy Skaer and David Maljkovic, and a group show of artists from its “In Practice” program, which includes sexy “crush” videos by A.K. Burns and a pleasantly heady multimedia project by Keith Connolly, Ethan Ham, and Tom Thayer.

The touring retrospective of the Postminimalist hometown hero Bill Bollinger is set to open there on April 22. SculptureCenter Names Ruba Katrib Curator
