PITTSBURGH, PA.- The Andy Warhol Museum has appointed José Carlos Diaz as its Milton Fine Curator of Art. Diaz was previously curator of exhibitions at the Bass Museum of Art in Miami Beach, Florida. Diaz assumes his role at The Warhol on May 16.

At the Bass, Diaz commissioned new art projects by Athi-Patra Ruga, Jérémy Gobé, and Sylvie Fleury, and curated the traveling exhibition GOLD, which examines how gold has been used in the past and the present and explores its conceptual and material future. He organized the exhibitions Rachel Harrison’s Voyage of the Beagle, One Way: Peter Marino, Vanitas: Fashion and Art, TIME, and Gravity and Grace: Monumental Works by El Anatsui. Diaz also organized Temporary Contemporary, a public sculpture program that partners with the Art Basel Miami Beach PUBLIC sector each year.

Prior to joining the Bass, Diaz worked at Tate Liverpool where he curated Tate Liverpool is 25, an anniversary exhibition, and organized Charline von Heyl: Now or Else and Doug Aitken: The Source, Doug Aitken’s first public art commission in the UK. He also served as project coordinator for the 2010 Liverpool Biennial. Diaz received a Master of Arts in cultural history from the University of Liverpool, and a Bachelor of Arts in art history from San Francisco State University.

“We are thrilled to welcome José Carlos Diaz to The Warhol team,” says Eric Shiner, The Warhol’s director. “José’s background in curation in both Miami and the United Kingdom is global in outlook, and eclectic and thought-provoking in content. He comes to us with equally dynamic ideas for future exhibitions here at the museum that will help us to rethink and redefine Warhol for the 21st century.”

“I am excited to have the opportunity to contribute to Andy Warhol’s legacy through the creation of dynamic new exhibitions at The Andy Warhol Museum,” says Diaz.

“Moving to Pittsburgh fits with my natural gravitation toward culturally rich communities with a focus on the arts, and I look forward to working with Eric Shiner and the museum’s outstanding team.”
