Cecilia Alemani Named New Curator/Director of The High Line Art Program

There’s to be some new blood at New York’s High Line soon. It’s been announced that Cecilia Alemani has been appointed the new curator and director of the High Line Art Program, taking over from Lauren Ross, who left the position at the start of the summer after having taken a job at the Philbrook Museum in Tulsa. Alemani had previously worked as an independent curator and writer, working with organizations like the Tate Modern, the MCA in Chicago, and the MoMA and its P.S.1, to name just a few. Most recently she was found guest curating for Performa 11 and collaborating on the Frieze Art Fair in London. Here’s a bit from the announcement:

“After an extensive search, it is clear that Cecilia is the best candidate to lead High Line Art. Cecilia is a thoughtful, forward-thinking curator who will bring an innovative approach to structuring the public art program on the High Line,” said Donald R. Mullen, Jr., the founding supporter of High Line Art and Board member of Friends of the High Line. “I have often said that the High Line is the new museum mile. High Line Art celebrates the park’s role in connecting two neighborhoods that make up the cultural hub of New York City, with the more than 400 galleries and cultural organizations that populate the streets below the park. Cecilia’s curatorial leadership will elevate High Line Art to new level in New York City and the international art world.
