SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- The Contemporary Jewish Museum announces the appointment of Anastasia Rygle as Associate Curator. Rygle begins in her new role today, November 4, 2015.

Rygle has most recently been an independent curator and writer based in New York City. Her expertise is in American and European art 1930–present with a focus on avant-garde and experimental practices and special attention to Andy Warhol and his circle. Recent projects have included guest curation of the exhibition Andy Warhol Prints from the Collection of Jordan Schnitzer for the Portland Art Museum, OR opening September 2016 and Brigid Berlin for Invisible Exports, NY, NY, just opened in October 2015. Rygle also guest curated the 2014 exhibition Billy Name: The Silver Age for Milk Gallery, NY, NY and has been an editor since 2014 for Reel Art Press, London.

In her new position at The CJM, Rygle will work with Chief Curator Renny Pritikin to develop original exhibitions, oversee touring exhibitions, initiate and manage artist commissions and special Museum projects, and to foster institutional partnerships in the Bay Area and beyond.

“I’m thrilled that Anastasia has agreed to join our curatorial team,” says Pritikin. “She is a young curator with significant museum experience, a sophisticated understanding of contemporary art, and a sympathy and familiarity with Jewish tradition, who will help us in our project of threading together exhibitions of contemporary art and Jewish ideas. Her first project will be leading the preparations for our upcoming 2016 Stanley Kubrick retrospective.”

Before becoming an independent curator, Rygle worked as assistant curator at the Queens Museum, where she organized 13 Most Wanted: Andy Warhol and the 1964 New York World’s Fair. Prior to that, she completed numerous internships and fellowships at a wide array of institutions including The Andy Warhol Museum, The Carnegie Museum of Art, The Wurtembergischer Kunstverein, Stuttgart, and the Dia Foundation for the Arts. She has also worked with a number of single artist archives and private collections. At the Andy Warhol Museum, she assisted on the exhibitions, Warhol Live! Music and Dance in Andy Warhol’s Work, Canis Major: Andy Warhol’s Cats and Dogs, and Recette Satire: Andy Warhol and Suzie Frankfurt.

In 2012, she received her MA from the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College, NY where her written thesis, “Ray Johnson: The Dover Street Years, 1953–1960” was accompanied by an exhibition featuring nearly seventy works. Rygle received her BA in Art History and Museum Studies from Chatham University, PA.

“I am delighted to be joining the curatorial team at The CJM, an institution that I have long admired for its remarkable exhibitions and educational programming,” says Rygle. “I look forward to working with a fantastic team of colleagues and developing exhibitions that weave together contemporary art and the Jewish tradition with an emphasis on dialogue and community.”
