The Work of Art: Katie Pfohl, Curator at NOMA

Katie Pfohl is the Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the New Orleans Museum of Art. Before coming to NOMA, Pfohl served as a curator at the Louisiana State University Museum of Art, and has worked in three of the premier art museums in the country-the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

In 2006, she completed the Whitney Independent Study Program in New York, a widely respected contemporary art residency program that invites curators, artists and scholars from across the world to participate in a year-long seminar on pressing issues in contemporary art and culture. Modern and contemporary art was also a major focus of Pfohl’s Ph.D. at Harvard University. Her current exhibition Inventing Acadia: Painting and Place in Louisiana is on view at NOMA through January 26.

Katie joins us now to share her contribution to  the artistic process as a curator.

This program originally aired November 22, 2019. The Work of Art is supported by The Helis Foundation.
