The Museum of Modern Art announces the promotion of Sarah Suzuki to Curator in the Department of Drawings and Prints. Suzuki, who has served as Associate Curator in the department since 2010, began her career at the Museum as a research assistant in 1998.

“Sarah has an acute understanding of the Museum’s collection across periods, mediums, and departments. Her work consistently prompts us to question assumed historical narratives and has greatly contributed to the enrichment and diversification of our holdings and programs,” said Christophe Cherix, the Robert Lehman Foundation Chief Curator of Drawings and Prints. “I am delighted to see Sarah taking a more senior role at the Museum.”

At MoMA, Suzuki has organized critically acclaimed exhibitions that reexamine the Museum’s collection, including Soldier, Spectre, Shaman: The Figure and the Second World War, with Assistant Curator Lucy Gallun (2015); Mind and Matter: Alternative Abstractions, 1940s to Now (2010); and Wunderkammer: A Century of Curiosities (2008). In 2011, as part of Abstract Expressionist New York, she organized Rock Paper Scissors and Ideas Not Theories: Artists and the Club with Jodi Hauptman, Senior Curator. Her monographic exhibitions include Jean Dubuffet: Soul of the Underground (2014), with Hauptman; The Paris of Toulouse-Lautrec: Prints and Posters (2014); and Wait, Later This Will All Be Nothing: Editions by Dieter Roth (2013).
