MCA Denver names Miranda Lash new Ellen Bruss Senior Curator
Lash has most recently served as the Curator of Contemporary Art at the Speed Art Museum in Louisville, Kentucky since 2014.

DENVER, CO.- MCA Denver announced that Miranda Lash has been named the new Ellen Bruss Senior Curator.

“Miranda is an exceptionally talented curator who brings to Denver a wealth, breadth, and depth of experience and knowledge, bold ideas, a commitment to community engagement, and a dedication to exhibiting artworks by women, LGBTQ-identifying artists, and artists of color. I have full confidence in her ability to build upon MCA Denver’s renowned exhibitions program and continue to advance the museum as a leader in the field of contemporary art, while also pushing our field even further,” said Nora Burnett Abrams, MCA Denver Mark G. Falcone Director.

Lash has most recently served as the Curator of Contemporary Art at the Speed Art Museum in Louisville, Kentucky since 2014. Over the course of her career she has organized more than thirty museum exhibitions, including the touring exhibitions Southern Accent: Seeking the American South in Contemporary Art, co-curated with Trevor Schoonmaker (2016), and Mel Chin: Rematch, a retrospective of work by subsequent MacArthur Fellow Mel Chin (2014).

“My goal is to bring a wide range of artists to MCA Denver - both global and local. As a Mexican-American who was raised in a bilingual household, I am excited to come work in a city that has a sizable Latinx population and I will work hard to make sure the artists that we exhibit at MCA Denver respond to the demographics of the city,” Lash continued. “I am committed to keeping BIPOC artists and creative collaborators at the forefront of my practice, as I have done at my previous institutions.”

Other recent exhibitions she curated include Yinka Shonibare CBE: The American Library, which celebrated the contributions of immigrants to the United States, co-curated with Alice Gray Stites (2019); Keltie Ferris: *O*P*E*N*, a major survey of abstract paintings and body prints (2018); Breaking the Mold: Investigating Gender at the Speed Art Museum, which focused on evolving perceptions of gender and featured a collaboration with the Faulkner Morgan Archive of LGBTQ history (2018), and BRUCE CONNER: FOREVER AND EVER, co-curated with Dean Otto (2017).

Lash will begin her position at MCA Denver on September 14, 2020.
