LOS ANGELES, CA.- The Annenberg Space for Photography, L.A.’s premier destination for photography, names arts veteran Katie Hollander as its new director today. Hollander has served as the interim director since November 2017.

“It was imperative for me to find someone who not only understands the founding vision for how the Annenberg Space for Photography has contributed to the cultural landscape of Los Angeles, but who also could propel us into our next decade with strong leadership and new, thought-provoking ideas,” said Annenberg Foundation Chairman, President and CEO Wallis Annenberg. “Katie has already proven that she can inspire others, and I know she will continue to build on the momentum we’ve achieved in our first 10 years with great success.”

Hollander brings to the vibrant and evolving L.A. art scene her wide and deep experience in New York. She was Deputy and then Executive Director of the highly-regarded nonprofit public arts organization Creative Time, known for Tribute in Light, the New York City installation commemorating 9/11. While there, she commissioned such ambitious projects as Duke Riley’s Fly By Night and was involved in Kara Walker’s blockbuster The Marvelous Sugar Baby.

She has also been a powerful supporter of women in the arts, having served as executive director of ArtTable, a membership organization for 1,200 women professionals in the visual arts, and she served in various capacities at the College Art Association.

“I am thrilled to be taking on the directorship at the Annenberg Space for Photography,” said Hollander. “Wallis Annenberg’s passion for photographers and photography is on full display with every new exhibition at the Photo Space and I look forward to bringing new ideas and experiences to our audiences. It is a privilege to be leading this unique cultural institution into the next decade. Public art, like photography, has the ability to challenge and expand our understanding of the world around us.”

Since 2009, Annenberg Space for Photography has produced exhibits that invite guests to see the world through a different lens. Each show also features a short documentary, commissioned by the Photo Space—many of them now award-winners—showing the photographers out in the field. For the 10th anniversary, Annenberg Space for Photography will continue to excite the photography community, the Photo Space’s dedicated fanbase, and cultural enthusiasts while broadening its reach to capture the attention and pique the curiosity of those who have not yet visited.
