The Work of Art: Katie Pfohl, Curator at NOMA

Dec 7, 2019

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.
