Emma Enderby joins Public Art Fund's Curatorial Department
Formerly Exhibitions Curator at London’s Serpentine Galleries, Enderby curated a number of shows.

NEW YORK, NY.- Public Art Fund announced that Emma Enderby has joined the organization as Associate Curator. Formerly Exhibitions Curator at London’s Serpentine Galleries, Enderby curated a number of shows including, Rachel Rose: Palisades; Leon Golub: Bite Your Tongue; Trisha Donnelly, and was the co-project curator for the Serpentine’s Pavilion commission with selgascano (2015) and Smiljan Radić (2014). Enderby joins the curatorial department, which includes Director & Chief Curator Nicholas Baume and Andria Hickey, formerly Public Art Fund Associate Curator, who has been promoted to the role of Curator.

Since Baume joined Public Art Fund in September 2009, the organization has expanded significantly in terms of program, staff, and budget. Staff has more than doubled from 8 to 17 members, while the organizational budget has grown by roughly 190% from nearly $1.9 million to $5.5 million. These increases are due, in large part, to the ambitious scope and breadth of its exhibitions and the size of the audiences engaging with its work.

“Public Art Fund was founded by Doris C. Freedman in 1977 with a goal of making great works of contemporary art freely available to the broad public. Since then, New Yorkers have come to expect that significant artworks by important artists will populate their neighborhoods; it’s one of the things that makes New York such an exciting and vibrant place to live and visit. Our increased capacity and expanded program have enabled us to impact larger audiences and offer them the chance to explore the city through the eyes of a broader and more diverse range of artists and perspectives,” said Baume.

This expansion of the exhibition program has also enabled Public Art Fund to work with artists to develop new bodies of work or to expand their practice in previously unexplored ways. Recent major presentations have included Kate Gilmore: Walk the Walk (2010, Bryant Park), the artist’s first live public project; Sol LeWitt: Structures, 1965-2006 (2011, City Hall Park), the first outdoor retrospective of the artist’s three-dimensional works; Tatzu Nishi: Discovering Columbus (2012, Columbus Circle), a once-in-a-lifetime experiential exhibition 70-feet above the street in Columbus Circle; Ugo Rodinone: Human Nature (2013, Rockefeller Center) a new body of work in which nine colossal stone figures stood like ancient sentries along the full length of Rockefeller Plaza; Jeppe Hein: Please Touch the Art (2015, Brooklyn Bridge Park), the most comprehensive exhibition of his work ever presented in public space in the United States; and most recently Hank Willis Thomas: The Truth is I See You (2015, MetroTech Commons, Downtown Brooklyn) an exploration of truth through a series of new works that engages the local community as well as the first presentation of the interactive Truth Booth in New York City. Public Art Fund also presents a series of six talks annually in partnership with the Vera List Center for Art and Politics at The New School and has recently introduced new educational initiatives, including educator and family guides for Danh Vo: We The People and a Family Day in Brooklyn Bridge Park, produced in partnership with the Children’s Museum of the Arts, for Jeppe Hein: Please Touch the Art.

“Reinforcing Public Art Fund’s staff and financial capacity reflects our mission to present ambitious exhibitions that impact the public in powerful ways,” said Public Art Fund Board Chairman Jill Kraus. “We place a premium on shows that offer access to the best international visual art for broad audiences in New York City, and more significant resources are key to this.”

As Exhibitions Curator at the Serpentine Galleries, Emma Enderby curated a number of exhibitions including, Rachel Rose: Palisades; Leon Golub: Bite Your Tongue; Trisha Donnelly; organized the tour of Haim Steinbach: once again the world is flat; and assisted on Adrian Villar Rojas: Today We Reboot The Planet and Jake and Dinos Chapman: Come and See. She was also the co-project curator for the Serpentine’s Pavilion commission with selgascano (2015) and Smiljan Radić (2014). Enderby has contributed texts and edited a number of publications and periodicals, and co-runs a London-based artist project space. Previously, she worked in Exhibitions at the Royal Academy of Arts, London and the Whitechapel Gallery, London.
