Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University

I am thrilled by the Nasher's willingness and fearlessness to experiment and constantly rethink and push what it means to be a museum and develop exhibitions. I'm excited to join a team that's reflecting and looking forward and really thinking deeply about the historical impact of the work that it does in relationship to our sociocultural moment and our futures.
