Vivian Li has been appointed the curator of contemporary art at the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA). Li most recently served as associate curator of Asian art and global contemporary art at the Worcester Art Museum in Massachusetts. In her new role, she will work closely with senior curator of contemporary art Anna Katherine Brodbeck. Li will assume her responsibilities on October 7.
“Just as we recently created new curatorial roles in Islamic and Latin American art to support and further strengthen these areas of our collection, we are pleased to strengthen our curatorial expertise in contemporary art with Vivian’s appointment,” DMA director Agustín Arteaga said in a statement. “With her engagement in both contemporary and Asian art across periods, she is poised to enhance and bring a new dimension to the study and presentation of the DMA’s contemporary art collection, which has particularly outstanding holdings of postwar Japanese art.”
