Brandeis University’s Rose Art Museum in Waltham, Massachusetts, has named Ruth Estévez as its senior curator-at-large. Estévez, who splits her time between Mexico City and Los Angeles, is an independent curator, writer, and stage designer with a focus on contemporary art.
Estévez is currently overseeing “Idiorritmias,” a performance program that will take place at the Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona. She previously was gallery director and curator of REDCAT in Los Angeles. In a release, Estévez said, “I’m interested in creating multidisciplinary programs that cross boundaries between visual arts, performing arts and spatial practice and plan to bring forward a plurality of voices, inspired by the longtime legacy of social justice at Brandeis University.”
Luis Croquer, the director and chief curator of the Rose, said in a statement, “Ruth’s extensive knowledge of contemporary art practice and her experience questioning and mining existing structures will play a key role in shaping the museum’s future and will serve as a connector to the rest of the world.”
