This just in from Bob Cozzolino, Associate Curator at PAFA and friend of Artblog: PAFA’s just appointed a replacement for recently departed Contemporary Art Curator Alex Baker who left recently for a post at the National Gallery of Victoria down under in Australia.

Julien Robson, a Scottish-born curator who’s been a cutting edge mover and shaker at the Speed Art Museum in Louisville, KY for the last 8 years will bring his curatorial chops to Philly starting July 7.

Among other things, Robson did a show on Duchamp… and was involved in a billboard project involving texting and the internet (one can only imagine!). Jazzy times to come, you all.

David Brigham, PAFA’s new Museum Director, comments, “We are impressed by Julien’s artistic leadership of the contemporary art program at the Speed Art Museum; his diverse prior experiences as an artist, gallery director, and art dealer; as well as his well-rounded attention to collectors, programming, and development of support. He will add immeasurably to the contemporary art scene in Philadelphia.”

More to come…
