HOUSTON, TEXAS—The Moody Center for the Arts at Rice University in Houston, Texas, has welcomed Ylinka Barotto and Frauke V. Josenhans to its curatorial staff. As associate curators, both Barotto and Josenhans will be responsible for the development and execution of exhibitions and other projects.

“We’re looking forward to the creative contributions these two talented women will make in support of the Moody’s mission to foster interdisciplinary conversation through the arts,” Alison Weaver, the Moody’s executive director, said in a statement. “Through projects that engage both the Moody and Rice Public Art, we have the opportunity to broaden the conversation across fields of research and to engage diverse communities, both on and off campus.”

Barotto joins the center from the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum where she most recently served as assistant curator. During her tenure at the institution, she worked on “Alberto Burri: The Trauma of Painting” (2015), “Moholy-Nagy: Future Present” (2016), “Danh Vo: Take My Breath Away” (2018), and “Artistic License: Six Takes on the Guggenheim Collection,” which is currently on view until January 12, 2020.

Josenhans comes to the museum from the Yale University Art Gallery, where she worked as associate curator of modern and contemporary art. She curated exhibitions such as “Everything Is Dada” (2016), “Modern Art from the Middle East” (2017), and “Artists in Exile: Expressions of Loss and Hope” (2017).
