Cathleen Chaffee, the assistant curator of modern and contemporary art at the Yale University Art Gallery, in New Haven, Conn., has been named curator at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, in Buffalo, N.Y., Art in America reports.

Ms. Chaffee has been at Yale since 2010, and previously served as a curatorial assistant at the Cleveland Museum of Art and our own Museum of Modern Art. In New Haven her shows included “Still Life: 1970s Photorealism,” which opened this past August and 2012’s “Radical Visions, Practically Applied: Women’s Innovations in Abstraction, 1915–37.” She also coordinated the museum’s artist-in-residence program, whose participants included Tris Vonna-Michell and Carl Bove.

Speaking of the Albright-Knox, if you missed the excellent Ken Price works-on-paper show when it was at the Drawing Center earlier this year, it’s now on view up there through Jan. 19.
