Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum appoints new associate curator
According to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum’s newly appointed associate curator of the collection, Dr. Anne-Marie Eze, “The Gardner Museum is a very exciting place to be right now, so I am delighted to continue working here in a new capacity.” In her former role as the Museum’s first Andrew W. Mellon postdoctoral curatorial fellow, Eze elevated the reputation of the Gardner’s manuscripts and rare books collection with “Illuminating the Serenissima: Books of the Republic of Venice,” publications, and public programs.
The associate curator hails from the United Kingdom, where she received a doctorate in art history at the Courtauld Institute of Art and the department of Western Manuscripts of the British Library.
If you haven’t yet visited the scrumptious 1902 building (modeled after a 15th-century Venetian palazzo) and its new wing designed by Renzo Piano, move it to the top of your to do list. And before you pass through its doors, an untitled wall-sized work by artist Adam Pendleton will greet you from the exterior facade, featuring a portrait of an African “Fang Man.”June Wulff can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
