The Revolving Door: MoMA Hires Juliet Kinchin as New Design and Architecture Curator

It looks like Paola Antonelli is going to have a new pal around the office, as it’s been announced that Juliet Kinchin is moving from the Glasgow School of Art to become the MoMA‘s newest curator of the museum’s design and architecture department. But it looks like Antonelli doesn’t have to worry too much about her new employee sneaking up and stealing her gig as the senior curator, because while she focuses on the newer stuff, like the recent “Design and the Elastic Mind,” Kinchin’s specialty is apparently art and design from the past two centuries, which should now make the department a force to be reckoned with. Here’s some about her past:

Ms. Kinchin comes to MoMA from the Glasgow School of Art, where she was a senior lecturer of art and design. She has also taught at the Bard Graduate Center for Study in the Decorative Arts and was a curator of decorative arts in several Glasgow museums and art galleries and at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
