Carol Vogel has news of the changes on the Guggenheim’s board of trustees and the appointment of a new curator:
The new board members — both contemporary-art collectors — are Dimitris Daskalopoulos, a businessman who lives in Athens and has been a member of the Guggenheim’s International Director’s Council, and Theodor Dalenson, a venture capitalist from Stockholm. They fill gaps left by the resignations of Peter M. Brant, Frederick B. Henry and Raja W. Sidawi.
“We were looking for active collectors,” Mr. Armstrong said, “and for people who live abroad, so that the board better reflects the global aspect of the institution.”
For the job of curator of 20th-century art, the board selected Carmen Giménez, a 20-year Guggenheim veteran. Ms. Giménez has organized many exhibitions at the museum.
