TUCSON, AZ.- The Center for Creative Photography announced the appointment of Joshua Chuang to the position of Chief Curator. Mr. Chuang, who has been the Richard Benson Associate Curator of Photography and Digital Media at the Yale University Art Gallery, will assume his new post in April 2014.

The Center for Creative Photography is recognised as one of the world’s finest academic art museums and study centres for the history of photography, holding North America’s largest collection of photography, with over five million archival objects making up the Center’s collection. Mr. Chuang will lead the Center’s curatorial program, organizing exhibitions and publications as well as overseeing acquisitions.

“Joshua brings a rare blend of imagination and rigor to his exhibitions, lectures, and publications, and has a gift for sharing his knowledge in a highly engaging way, said Katharine Martinez, Director of the CCP. “He will play a major role in shaping the Center’s future as we acquire and promote photographic collections of extraordinary quality to stimulate imagination, advance scholarship, and encourage creativity.”

Mr. Chuang’s research has thus far focused on modern and contemporary American photography. He began his curatorial career a decade ago at the Yale University Art Gallery, and was named the museum’s first dedicated curator of photography in 2007. He was the lead curator for the acclaimed retrospective exhibition Robert Adams: The Place We Live that toured North America from 2010-12 and that is currently travelling in Europe through the summer of 2014. Mr. Chuang directed that exhibition’s attendant three-volume publication, a second edition of which has just been released by Steidl. While at Yale he also organized the exhibitions First Doubt: Optical Confusion in Modern Photography and Art for Yale: Collecting for a New Century (co-organized with Jock Reynolds and Susan Matheson) along with their accompanying catalogues. In addition to his work as a curator, he has lectured and written extensively on modern and contemporary photography, and made key contributions to more than a dozen artist monographs, including those on the work of Lee Friedlander, Judith Joy Ross, and Mark Ruwedel.

“I am delighted to join the Center’s staff and work with its unrivalled collection,” Mr. Chuang said. “I look forward to mining the rich traditions of the medium embodied by the CCP while exploring photography’s present and posing questions about its future.”
