High Museum hires new Assistant Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art
Siegel is currently a curatorial associate at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
ATLANTA, GA.- The High Museum of Art announced the appointment of Lily Siegel as the Museum’s assistant curator of modern and contemporary art. Siegel is currently a curatorial associate at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA) and will join the High on Oct. 8.

Siegel has been involved in all aspects of the curatorial department at MOCA since 2008, including serving as the curatorial representative of the MOCA Think Tank - a cross-departmental committee that oversees a residency program for Southern California artists.

As assistant curator of modern and contemporary art, Siegel will work closely with Wieland Family Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Michael Rooks, to develop original exhibitions, organize traveling exhibitions, foster innovative partnerships in Atlanta and elsewhere, and further build the museum’s growing collection of contemporary art.

“We are excited to have Lily join our curatorial staff,” said Michael Rooks. “Lily has an impressive record of organizing thought-provoking exhibitions and we look forward to bringing her energy and enthusiasm to the High.”

Most recently, Siegel assisted with the organization of the exhibitions “Ends of the Earth: Land Art to 1974” and “Martin Kippenberger: The Problem Perspective” at MOCA. She was also the project coordinator of the exhibition “Dennis Hopper Double Standard,” and curator of the galleries devoted to MOCA's Artist Advisory Council in “The Artist’s Museum.”

“I am thrilled to join the team at the High and to become part of the Atlanta arts community. Michael’s vision to grow the region’s knowledge and appreciation of contemporary art is one I passionately share. This is a very exciting time for the arts in the Southeast; I am honored to be a part of the growth.”

Siegel received a Master of Arts degree in modern art history, theory and criticism from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a Bachelor of Arts degree in visual arts from the University of California, San Diego. She also received the NextGen Arts Professional Development Grant in 2011.
