In 2012-2013, we will welcome our second Honorary Fellow Ann Temkin, the Marie-Josée and Henry Kravis Chief Curator of Painting and Sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Dr. Temkin received a B.A. from Harvard University and a Ph.D. in the History of Art from Yale University. She first worked at the MoMA from 1984 to 1987 as a curatorial assistant in the painting and sculpture department. In 1990, she accepted the position of curator of modern and contemporary art at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, where she worked until her return to the Modern’s painting and sculpture department in 2003. Upon the retirement of her predecessor John Elderfield in 2008, Dr. Temkin assumed the role of Chief Curator of painting and sculpture at the museum. Her research is focused mostly on postwar and contemporary art, with past exhibitions surveying artists Joseph Beuys, Sherrie Levine, Alice Neel, Barnett Newman, Gabriel Orozco, and Raymond Pettibon, among others. She recently curated a major exhibition on abstract expressionism in New York, culled entirely from the MoMA’s collection.
