The museum’s opening is a long way off but it is never too early to start planning:
the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority named Doryun Chong, currently of New York’s Museum of Modern Art, as its chief curator. He is due to start the job in September, joining the museum’s existing curatorial team.
“We have been searching for the right chief curator for years,” said Lars Nittve, executive director of M+, in a statement. […] Born in South Korea, Mr. Chong graduated from the University of California at Berkeley and first worked as a curator at San Francisco’s Asian Art Museum in 1999. Four years later, he joined the Walker Art Center Minneapolis, and in 2009 became associate curator of painting and sculpture at MoMA, where he recently organized “Tokyo 1955-1970: A New Avant-Garde.”
