NEW YORK, NY.- The Guggenheim congratulates Nancy Spector, Deputy Director and Jennifer and David Stockman Chief Curator, for being named on the 40 Women To Watch Over 40 list.

The list, created by innovators and disruptors in their own right Christina Vuleta and Whitney Johnson, calls attention to the fact that many successful women over 40 are still making major contributions to our culture and society as a whole despite a persistent focus on youth. Vuleta and Johnson explain, “We want to inspire 40-something disruptors to persist despite the rise of the ‘30 under 30’ power lists while motivating women in their in their 20s and 30s to see new possibilities.”

“I’m honored to have been included in a list of such formidable, accomplished women from so many different disciplines. It is particularly rewarding to see the cultural sphere included as a place for meaningful disruption as well as innovation,” says Spector of the award.

A curator at the Guggenheim since 1989, Spector works with the Director to define the museum’s global strategy and oversee the creative programming for the institution and its affiliates around the world. She has organized exhibitions on conceptual photography, Felix Gonzalez Torres, Matthew Barney’s Cremaster cycle, Richard Prince, Louise Bourgeois, Marina Abramovic, Tino Sehgal, and Maurizio Cattelan.
