MOMA Appoints Quentin Bajac Chief Curator of Photography

The Museum of Modern Art, New York, has selected Quentin Bajac as its next Chief Curator of Photography. Bajac, who has been the Chief Curator of Photography at the Centre Pompidou, Musée Nationale d’art moderne in Paris since 2007, will assume his new position at MoMA in January 2013. He will replace Peter Galassi, who retired last year.

The lengthy search had caused considerable comment in the photo world, but Bajac's appointment fills the role with a proven top international curator.
