NEW YORK, NY.- Dia announced today the appointment of Humberto Moro to the position of Deputy Director of Program. Overseeing and amplifying the dynamic work of Dia’s Curatorial, Exhibition Design and Installation, Learning and Engagement, and Publications departments, Moro will play a key role in determining Dia’s future development and direction as it looks toward its 50th anniversary and beyond. Moro comes to Dia from the Museo Tamayo, Mexico City, where he is Deputy Director and Senior Curator, and SCAD Museum of Art, Savannah, where he has held the position of Adjunct Curator since 2020 and was previously Curator from 2016 to 2020. In 2021, Moro completed a Center for Curatorial Leadership Fellowship, which included a residency at Dia. Moro will begin his new role in early 2022.

“I am thrilled that Humberto Moro is joining the Dia team at this pivotal moment in our history,” said Jessica Morgan, Dia’s Nathalie de Gunzburg Director. “As we look to tell a more comprehensive and inclusive narrative of the period of art history Dia has historically focused on—the 1960s and ’70s—as well as extend this thread through our contemporary commissions, publications, and public engagement, Moro’s expertise will be vital. In this newly created role, Moro will be a thought leader, overseeing all the institution’s programs. His voice will be crucial in guiding Dia’s uniquely artist-centric, experimental ethos.”

“I am delighted to join Dia, a trailblazing institution that has led the conversation on notions of site-specificity, temporality, scale, preservation, and the artist-centric model, all of which are critical as we rethink today’s cultural institutions. It is inspiring to see how Dia has been actively reshaping its mission and values, and as I think about our collective future, I am excited to help propel the foundation’s exhibitions, publications, and public programs to be even more accessible, diverse, and meaningful to all the different communities we serve,” said Moro.

Most recently, Humberto Moro has held the position of Deputy Director and Senior Curator at the Museo Tamayo in Mexico City, where he curated OTRXS MUNDXS (2020–21), a large-scale survey of artists working in the city; organized the educational program Futuros Posibles (Possible futures, 2019–21); and co-organized Más allá de los árboles (Beyond the trees, 2021–22), the museum’s forthcoming 40th anniversary exhibition. Moro is the curator of the 2022 Exposure section at EXPO Chicago. From 2016 to 2020 he held the position of Curator at the SCAD Museum of Art in Savannah and in 2020 became Adjunct Curator. At SCAD, he co-organized Frederick Douglass: Embers of Freedom (2019–20) and Elizabeth Catlett: Points of Contact (2021–22); mounted a cycle of solo shows by Latin American women artists like Anna Maria Maiolino, Liliana Porter, and Nohemí Pérez, as well as exhibitions by Kenturah Davis, Isaac Julien, and Mark Wallinger; and curated forthcoming shows by Matthew Angelo Harrison and Katharina Grosse. Independently, Moro curated Liliana Porter: Other Situations (2018–19), the reopening exhibition at El Museo del Barrio that included the play THEM at the Kitchen, and edited a forthcoming publication culminating this three-part project. Moro has previously held curatorial positions at the Park Avenue Armory in New York and Museo Jumex in Mexico City. He was awarded the 2016 Estancias Tabacalera for Latin American curators and was part of the 7th Gwangju Biennale International Curator Course. Moro holds a BFA in painting from the Universidad de Guanajuato, Mexico, and an MA in curatorial studies from the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York. He is part of the 2021 cohort of the Center for Curatorial Leadership, New York.
