LIVERPOOL.- Tate Liverpool announced the appointment of Gavin Delahunty to the position of Head of Exhibitions and Displays. Gavin is currently Curator at mima (Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art). He will join the gallery in November 2010 and succeeds Peter Gorschlüter, who has taken up the position of Deputy Director at MMK (Museum für Moderne Kunst) in Frankfurt.

Gavin will work alongside Tate Liverpool Director Christoph Grunenberg to lead the programme of the Gallery. He stated, “I am delighted to welcome Gavin to the Tate Liverpool team. His appointment strengthens the existing curatorial department and its already strong international outlook. We look forward to Gavin’s expertise and specialist knowledge shaping our future exhibitions and displays.”

Gavin added, “I am delighted to be joining the distinguished team at Tate Liverpool. The gallery has an astonishing exhibition history, in many instances hosting the first solo exhibition in Britain of some of the world’s most influential artists. I look forward to contributing to its mission and delivering first rate international exhibitions.”

In his three years at mima Gavin has curated a number of important exhibitions including British Surrealism & Other Realities (2008); Katy Moran: Paintings (2009); The End of the Line: Attitudes in Drawing (2009); Gerhard Richter: Modern Times (2009) in partnership with ARTIST ROOMS; Ellsworth Kelly: Drawings 1954-62 (2010); A Certain Distance Endless Light: A project by Felix Gonzalez-Torres & William McKeown (2010) and Bonnie Camplin: Railway Mania (2010). His exhibition Gerhard Richter “Lines which do not exist” will open at The Drawing Center, New York in September 2010 showcasing the artist’s works on paper for the first time in the United States.

Gavin also led the Art Fund International Award, in consultation with The Drawing Center, New York. Under this scheme he has overseen major acquisitions for the mima collection by artists such as Stephen Antonakos, Robert Breer, James Lee Byars, Nathan Carter, Robert Gober, Michael Heizer, Ellsworth Kelly, Barbara Kruger, Adrian Piper, Fred Sandback, Paul Sharits, Robert Smithson, Al Taylor and Kara Walker.

Gavin has previously worked at Modern Art Oxford; the Douglas Hyde Gallery, Dublin and the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin. He holds an MA in Visual Arts Practices from IADT (Institute of Art, Design and Technology), Dublin.
