NEW YORK, NY.- The Centre Pompidou Foundation announced the appointment of Sylvia Chivaratanond as the first Suzanne Deal Booth Adjunct Curator of American Art for the Centre Pompidou and the Centre Pompidou Foundation.

Her notable curatorial projects include exhibitions at the Walker Art Center, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, Tate Gallery in London and the 2003 Venice Biennale.

Centre Pompidou Director Alfred Pacquement said, “We are very pleased to welcome Sylvia Chivaratanond to our curatorial team at the Pompidou.

We look forward to working with Ms. Chivaratanond on our initiatives to bring acquisitions of American art to the Centre Pompidou.”

Suzanne Deal Booth, Centre Pompidou Foundation Director, said, “We are thrilled to have Sylvia Chivaratanond as part of our team. The Centre Pompidou has always been a dynamic institution, uniquely positioned with its holdings and resources to shape culture and education. With this appointment, the Centre Pompidou Foundation demonstrates its ongoing commitment to one of the world’s greatest museums.“

“I am honored to be able to work with such a venerable museum and Foundation and to help their important mission of bringing the work of American artists to the Centre Pompidou,” said Sylvia Chivaratanond. “I very much look forward to working with Alfred Pacquement, the exceptional team of curators at the Centre Pompidou and the Directors of the Foundation.”
