NEW YORK, NY.- Glenn D. Lowry, Director of The Museum of Modern Art, announces that Roxana Marcoci has been promoted to Senior Curator in MoMA's Department of Photography. Ms. Marcoci joined the Museum in 1999 as the Janice H.

She currently also chairs the Museum's Modern Women's Fund Committee, and the Central and Eastern European group, part of the Contemporary and Modern Art Perspectives (C-MAP) in a Global Age.

"This promotion recognizes Roxana Marcoci's exceptional merit and her unique contribution to MoMA," said Mr. Lowry. "In her 14 years at the Museum, she has not only organized groundbreaking exhibitions, but also has played a significant role in highlighting and redefining the influential role of photography in contemporary art."

Other recent exhibitions that she organized at MoMA include: Taryn Simon: A Living Man Declared Dead and Other Chapters I-XVIII (2012); Staging Action: Performance in Photography Since 1960 (with Eva Respini, 2011); Pictures by Women: A History of Modern Photography (with Sarah Meister and Eva Respini, 2010); and Jan De Cock: Denkmal 11 (2008). Ms. Marcoci has organized numerous other shows within the New Photography series, most recently New Photography 2013: Adam Bromberg and Oliver Chanarin, Brendan Fowler, Annette Kelm, Lisa Oppenheim, Anna Ostoya, Josephine Pryde, Eileen Quinlan (through January 6, 2014), and within the Projects series. She recently organized Ansel Adams: The Politics of Contemplation (2013) for MoMA PS1’s exhibition EXPO 1: New York, and is currently working on the retrospective exhibition Christopher Williams: The Production Line of Happiness (2014).
