NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ.- The Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers welcomed a new appointment and announced two promotions to key museum positions in February. Amanda Potter, most recently Educator for Public and University Programs at the Wexner Center for the Arts at The Ohio State University in Columbus, joined the Zimmerli staff as Curator of Education and Interpretation on February 1. Christine Giviskos, Ph.D., and Julia Tulovsky, Ph.D., both associate curators at the Zimmerli since 2007, have been promoted to curator and head of their respective departments. Giviskos now serves as Curator of Prints, Drawings, and European Art, and Tulovsky as Curator of Russian and Soviet Nonconformist Art.

Marti Mayo, the interim director of the Zimmerli, stated, “These appointments will allow the museum to continue serving both scholarly and general audiences from the Rutgers campus and beyond with new leadership overseeing our diverse collections that span the traditional Western European canon and the important collection of work from Russia and the former Soviet republics. In this spirit, we are pleased to welcome Amanda Potter and delighted to announce the promotions of Christine Giviskos and Julia Tulovsky.”

During a nearly decade-long tenure at the Wexner, Amanda Potter managed an active calendar of programs for both the university community and general public, featuring internationally acclaimed artists and scholars, such as Mark Bradford, T.J. Clark, and Catherine Opie. She increased university engagement with the Wexner, for example, creating the Double Take gallery talk series, which brought together two Ohio State professors from different fields to share their insights on an exhibition. In addition, she launched several initiatives to support learning in the galleries, including the introduction of augmented reality tours that allow visitors to use iPads to explore works of art in depth. Potter received her B.A. from Dartmouth College and M.A. from Williams College, both in Art History.

Christine Giviskos joined the Zimmerli staff in 2007 as Associate Curator of European Art. She has curated numerous exhibitions from the collection on such topics as the nude, the medical field, theatrical arts, and sports in 19th-century France. In addition, she organized the special exhibitions Picturing War: Selections from the Zimmerli Art Museum Collection; Two Venetian Masters: Canaletto and Domenico Tiepolo Etchings from the Arthur Ross Foundation; and Blocks of Color: American Woodcuts from the 1890s to the Present. Prior to her work at the Zimmerli, Giviskos was an assistant curator in the Department of Drawings at the J. Paul Getty Museum. She received her B.A. from Stanford University and her M.A. and Ph.D. degrees from New York University's Institute of Fine Arts.

Julia Tulovsky joined the Zimmerli staff in 2007 and is responsible for overseeing the museum’s Russian and Soviet art collection of more than 20,000 objects, including the Norton and Nancy Dodge Collection of Noncomformist Art. In recent years, she has curated exhibitions featuring the work of nonconformist artists Vagrich Bakhchanyan, Leonid Sokov, and Oleg Vassiliev, as well as Tales of War: A Selection of Works on Paper from the Claude and Nina Gruen Collection of Contemporary Russian Art; Artists' Portraits: Putting a Face to the Name; and Cast Me Not Away: Soviet Photography in the 1980s. Before coming to the Zimmerli, she worked as an Assistant Curator at the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow and served as the Executive Director of the Malevich Society in New York. Tulovsky holds B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees from Moscow State University.
