Hi, Bryan Here…
Today, the Dallas Museum of Art named Gabriel Ritter the Nancy and Tim Hanley Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art. Ritter begins his work on May 14. Gabriel is finishing up his Ph.D in art history at UCLA as well as a Doctoral Fellowship at the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo. He brings with him a breadth of knowledge and experience on modern and contemporary art. His work in the field spans multiple continents, where he has worked for several museums, served as an independent curator, organized exhibitions of emerging artists, and published scholarly papers. Ritter will also serve as one of three curators for the upcoming 2013 Roppongi Crossing exhibition held by the Mori Art Museum, Tokyo. He is one of the first non-Japanese curators to participate in this reoccurring series of exhibitions founded in 2004. The DMA has indicated that Ritter will work closely with The Hoffman Family Senior Curator of Contemporary Art to organize exhibitions in the Concentrations series, which focuses on overlooked and emerging artists. He will be responsible for working with artists and organizations in the area to “strengthen relationships and programs, as well as conduct research on the collection, make acquisitions, and collaborate on installations of the collection in galleries throughout the Museum”.
