Allison named curator at Brown's Bell Gallery

Maya Allison has been named curator at Brown University's Bell Gallery. She is expected to begin work on June 1, according to Bell Director Jo-Ann Conklin.

The position has been open since curator Vesela Sretenovic left in 2008. The gallery was close to hiring a new curator when the university instituted a hiring freeze that November. But as the school is preparing its budget for the next school year, it has decided to fill the curator post, Conklin says.

Allison had launched her own curatorial venture, Maya Allison Projects, after the closing in February of 5 Traverse Gallery in Providence, where she had been co-director since November 2008. Her background also includes organizing the annual Pixilerations new media festival in Providence and three years as contemporary art curatorial assistant at the RISD Museum.
