Australian curator and art historian Nicholas Chambers has been appointed the new Milton Fine Curator of Art at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. He takes over from Eric Shiner who vacated the position when he became Warhol Museum Director last July.
Chambers is currently Curator of Contemporary International Art at the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane, where he was one of the chief curators of Warhol’s first Australian retrospective in 2007. His appointment comes at a time of change for QAG. Not only is Chambers departing for the States next month, current QAG Director Tony Ellwood leaves for his new position as Director of the NGV on August 1st. Both are yet to be replaced.
