Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden
A step forward in an initiative to expand its digital collections, the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C has announced the appointment of its first-ever Curator of Media and Performance Art, Dr. Mark Beasley.
Beasley comes to the Hirshhorn after holding a curatorial post at Performa, where he worked with artists like Mark Leckey, Frances Stark, and Mike Kelley, and founded the organization’s Malcolm McLaren Award for risk-taking and irreverent artists. He previously worked as a curator and producer with the public arts organization Creative Time, and as curator for the British Council in London.
At the Hirshhorn, Beasley will report to Director Melissa Chiu and Chief Curator Stéphane Aquin. His responsibilities will include organizing exhibitions of new media art, and enhancing the institution’s collection of film, video, and performance works.
