The curator Jens Hoffmann has been named a senior adjunct curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit. He will curate “the museum’s major exhibitions,” according to the Detroit Free Press, as well as retain his current post as deputy director at New York’s Jewish Museum. (“He’ll commute to Detroit,” writes the Free Press.)

He was hired quietly earlier this year, having already organized a show that visited MOCAD, “When Attitudes Became Form Became Attitudes,” which opened in February.

The museum has been staffing up as of late. Elysia Borowy-Reeder started her job as director of MOCAD in April, a position that had been vacant since November 2011.
