PARIS.- Amélie Simier has been appointed director of the Musée Rodin by Roselyne Bachelot-Narquin, the French Minister of Culture. She will take over from her predecessor, Catherine Chevillot, on May 3, 2021.

Mrs. Simier, a specialist in nineteenth- and twentieth-century sculpture and a general heritage curator, has held successive curatorial positions – as curator of the Department of Modern Sculpture at the Petit Palais in Paris, then as director of the Musée Zadkine, also in Paris. Since 2011, she has been director of the Musée Bourdelle (Paris), founded in 1949 along the same lines as the Musée Rodin: a museum dedicated to a single artist and holding his entire oeuvre, organizing exhibitions in France and abroad, protecting the artist’s moral rights, and funded in part by the edition of original bronzes. She also taught for over fifteen years at the École du Louvre.

With her experience of -artist museums, her expert knowledge of sculpture, her international outlook (she organized the first Bourdelle exhibition in China) and her commitment to making culture accessible to all, she is well equipped to develop – at the Minister’s request and in collaboration with the museum team – an art and culture education policy and projects that will appeal to a wide audience, while maintaining the museum’s leading position in the field of research into Rodin and preserving the museum’s unique economic model, especially through the edition and sale of original bronzes.

Catherine Chevillot has been appointed president of the Cité de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine (Paris) and will take up her new post on March 8, 2021. During her nine years at the head of the Musée Rodin she gave the museum a new momentum – particularly with the renovation of the Hôtel Biron (2012-2015) and the 2017 celebrations marking the centenary of Rodin’s death – while also preserving the museum’s economic model and protecting the artist’s moral rights.
