MoMA gets its sixth director

Glenn D Lowry has left the Art Gallery of Ontario, Canada, to become the sixth director of New York’s Museum of Modern Art in its 65 years.

“Lowry will administer a programme of exhibitions, collections and publications in art of the twentieth century,” says a MoMA spokesman.

Lowry comments on the appointment: “I look forward with great anticipation to working with MoMA trustees and staff to expand the breadth and scope of this remarkable institution.”

He succeeds Richard E Oldenburg, who was the museum’s director for 22 years.
