Kate Fowle, the former chief curator of the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art in Moscow, has been appointed director of MoMA PS1 in Queens, ArtGuide reports.

MoMA’s director Glenn D. Lowry said Kate Fowle’s appointment was a natural choice: “She’s an accomplished scholar, a deft curator and an outstanding leader.”

The position of MoMA PS1’s director has been vacant since Klaus Biesenbach, the institution’s long-term director, departed to head the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles.

Fowle is director-at-large at Independent Curators International (ICI) in New York. She will start the new position at MoMA PS1 in September 2019.

Before the Garage Museum, she had been the executive director of ICI and served as the international curator at the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art in Beijing.

At the Garage Museum, Fowle curated and cocurated exhibitions by John Baldessari, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Anri Sala, Urs Fischer, Marcel Broodthaers and others.
