Moderna Museet appoints Hendrik Folkerts as Curator of International Contemporary Art
Folkerts has curated numerous solo and international group exhibitions.

STOCKHOLM.- Moderna Museet expands its team and welcomes Hendrik Folkerts to Stockholm.

“Our museum has a long-standing history of hosting international artists for groundbreaking exhibitions, performances, and other presentations, as well as through its world-renowned collection. In his role, Folkerts will be important in bringing this legacy into the future,” director Gitte Ørskou states.

“I am not exaggerating when I say that Moderna Museet has always been a beacon for me, integral to my practice as an art historian and a curator,” says Folkerts. “As I join the incredible team of this museum and the rich and diverse communities of Stockholm, I consider the great work ahead of us—at a time when artists and museums are uniquely positioned to address and give form to the questions that will define our future. It is humbling and invigorating at the same time, and I cannot wait to start!”

Folkerts has curated numerous solo and international group exhibitions as well as collection presentations, new commissions, and public programs, anchored in the expanded field of performance and building on feminist, queer, and anti-colonial histories of art.

He previously held positions as Dittmer Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Art Institute of Chicago (2017–present); as Curator at documenta 14, Kassel/Athens (2014–2017); as Curator of Performance, Film, and Discursive Programs at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2010–2015); and as the Coordinator of the Curatorial Program at De Appel arts centre, Amsterdam (2009–2011). He frequently writes for art journals and magazines, as well as exhibition catalogues and artists’ monographs.

Hendrik Folkerts will join Moderna Museet on October 1, 2021.
