EAST LANSING, MICH.- The Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University announced the appointment of Alison Gass as Deputy Director, effective immediately.

Gass has been with the Broad MSU since November of 2011 as the Curator of Contemporary Art, and her expanding skill set and dedication have been an integral part of the first year success the museum has enjoyed. Gass joined the Broad MSU from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and in 2010 was named one of nine young curators to watch in the New York Times piece “The New Guard of Curators Steps Up” by Carol Vogel.

“Ali has proven herself to be an essential part of our curatorial and programmatic team. We conducted a national search but the best person turned out to be right here,” said Michael Rush, Founding Director of the Broad MSU.

Gass will retain her role as Curator of Contemporary Art as well, and will receive support through an exciting guest curator program. The move will enable Gass to remain an important curatorial voice for the Broad MSU and beyond, as well as help drive the vision of the museum in the coming years.

“I am so thrilled to be taking on an expanded role at the Broad MSU and look forward to working even more closely with Michael Rush and our amazing team to build on the great triumphs of the first year,” said Gass. “This museum is a place for artists and curators alike to experiment and innovate, and we aim to bring the best in contemporary art practice to the broadest audiences imaginable from Mid-Michigan to the far reaches of world!”

The Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum, a new Zaha Hadid-designed contemporary art museum at Michigan State University, is dedicated to exploring global contemporary culture and ideas through art. Opened on November 10, 2012, the dynamic 46,000-square-foot museum serves as both a teaching institution and a cultural hub for East Lansing and the region. In keeping with MSU’s commitment to applying knowledge to benefit society and further the global common good, the Broad MSU’s program of original and traveling exhibitions, initiatives with living artists, performances, and educational offerings for students, faculty, and the community make the museum a center for questioning and understanding the modern world. With a collection containing 7,500 objects from the Greek and Roman periods through the Renaissance and on to the Modern, the Broad MSU is uniquely able to contextualize the wide range of contemporary art practices within a firm historical context. The museum is named in honor of Eli and Edythe Broad, longtime supporters of the university who provided the lead gift of $28 million.
