New York’s Public Art Fund gets Ken Baume from Boston’s ICA. The Boston Herald does a little re-cap of his career:
During his tenure at the ICA, Baume, a 44-year-old native of Australia, launched the museum’s ongoing “Momentum” series, which features site-specific installations from emerging artists, and organized hit shows of works by Anish Kapoor and Tara Donovan. […] The move comes at a time when the ICA is enjoying increased attention and popularity for both its new harborside building and its exhibits. Most recently, the museum has seen record-breaking crowds for its “Shepard Fairey: Supply & Demand” exhibit.
