The Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University has appointed Marshall Price as its new curator of modern and contemporary art. He has been curator of modern and contemporary art at the National Academy Museum in New York for 11 years and will assume the Nasher post, a newly created position, in March.
At the Academy, Price created the Windows on Fifth series in the museum’s front windows, which has featured video and digital works by such artists as Julian Opie, Adam Chapman, and Jennifer Steinkamp, as well as the Sculpture in the Rotunda series, which launched with a piece by John Chamberlain and recently featured a Phoebe Washburn installation. He also oversaw the acquisition of several hundred artworks into the museum’s collection.
Price received his PhD in 2011 from the City University of New York, and earned his master’s from Pennsylvania State University. He previously served as assistant curator at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art in California.
