WASHINGTON, DC.- The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden announces the appointment of Jarrett Gregory as curator as of Monday, March 6. Serving under the leadership of Hirshhorn Director Melissa Chiu and Chief Curator Stéphane Aquin, Gregory will be responsible for the development of the museum's contemporary international collection as well as a rotating schedule of exhibitions, commissions and special programs.

"We are very pleased to welcome Jarrett as the Hirshhorn's newest curator," said Chiu. "Jarrett has organized exhibitions of some of the most consequential international artists working today, including Pierre Huyghe and Stephen Prina, and we look forward to the experience and expertise she will bring to the Hirshhorn as the national museum of contemporary art."

"This is an exciting moment for the Hirshhorn," said Aquin. "As the fourth curator to join the museum in the past two years, Jarrett will contribute to a diverse and dynamic group of individuals, all of whom play an integral role in shaping the cultural conversation in Washington, D.C. and beyond."

Gregory most recently served as Associate Curator of Contemporary Art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), where she oversaw LACMA's iteration of Pierre Hyughe's retrospective, awarded the Best Monographic Exhibition Nationally by the International Association of Art Critics (AICA). Previously, Gregory held curatorial positions at the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, working on exhibitions of work by Lawrence Weiner, Urs Fisher and Dorothy Iannone. This year, Gregory curated the Focus section of the 2017 Armory show.

Gregory sits on advisory board for the Lusanga International Research Centre for Art and Economic Inequality (LIRCAEI) in Lusanga, Democratic Republic of the Congo, as well as on the advisory council for The Gogova Foundation and Artist Residency in Baku, Azerbaijan. Additionally, Gregory has guest lectured for USC and UCLA's MFA programs.
