Allison Rodman, who has served as communications manager for New York’s Armory Show for the past two years, has been tapped to be the new director of communications for MoMA PS1, taking the place of Rebecca Taylor, who parted ways with the institution last October to join the art PR firm Fitz & Co.
“It’s been an extraordinary experience working with the Armory Show during a time when Noah Horowitz’s inventive leadership has re-energized New York’s only hometown art fair,” Ms. Rodman told Gallerist in an e-mail. “Now MoMA PS1 is presenting a new set of opportunities, and I’m excited to lend a hand in helping the museum advance the mission of contemporary art under the visionary guidance of Klaus Biesenbach. It’s a museum that has repeatedly instructed and inspired me; let’s just say I’m looking forward to going back to school.”
On a closely related note, Ms. Rodman is the co-editor of Should I Go to Grad School?: 41 Answers to An Impossible Question, which was recently published by Bloomsbury. She and her fellow editors on that project run Platform for Pedagogy, which bills itself as “a group that publicizes and promotes public lectures, symposia and related cultural events in and around New York City.” They also organize events and run a handy listings website.
