MIT List Visual Arts Center Names New Public Art Curator and Assistant Curator

CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS—The MIT List Visual Arts Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts, has appointed Christopher Ketcham, who earned his Ph.D. in history, theory, and criticism of art from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2018, as associate curator of the center’s public art and permanent collection. Ketcham recently served as assistant registrar for collections and exhibitions at the Phillips Collection in Washington, DC.

The contemporary art museum has also promoted Selby Nimrod from curatorial assistant to assistant curator for exhibitions. Since joining the center in 2018, Nimrod has contributed scholarly writing to forthcoming monographs on Ericka Beckman and Alicja Kwade and initiated forthcoming List Projects exhibitions.

“We are pleased to welcome Christopher and congratulate Selby on her promotion,” said List Center director Paul C. Ha. “Together they bring years of scholarly writing and research that will invigorate our presentation of dynamic cutting-edge exhibitions, campus public art acquisitions, and new-percent-for-art commissions at MIT. I look forward to working with both of them to present the art of our time.”
