The Museum of Modern Art appointed former Dia Art Foundation curator Yasmil Raymond to the position of associate curator, according to a statement from the organization.

She will join the department of painting and sculpture. At Dia, she handled American and European art, with a specialty in contemporary art.

“We are thrilled to welcome Yasmil Raymond to our curatorial team,” said Ann Temkin, chief curator of painting and sculpture for MoMA, in a statement. “With her impressive experience in working closely with a wide range of international artists, she brings a wonderful new voice to the MoMA and MoMA PS1 community.”

In the past, Ms. Raymond has organized shows that feature the work of Yvonne Rainer, Koo Jeong A, Franz Erhard Walther, Carl Andre, Thomas Hirschhorn and Trisha Brown. She also assembled the forthcoming Dia show of Puerto Rico-based duo Allora & Calzadilla’s work, which will open in September.

Prior to her role at Dia, Ms. Raymond worked at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, where she arranged a Kara Walker exhibition that traveled to the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles.
