Dallas Contemporary’s Curatorial New Catch

The art scene is abuzz with news of the Dallas Contemporary%26#8217;s latest acquisition %26#8212; and it has little to do with pieces by James Gilbert or Nathaniel Glaspie. Instead, it%26#8217;s the announcement of the Contemporary%26#8217;s new executive director Peter Doroshenko, who will no doubt amp up the city%26#8217;s cultural energy. The internationally renowned curator, director and writer returns stateside this October after several European turns: The native Chicagoan is currently the president and artistic director of the Pinchuk Art Centre in Kiev; before that, he held prominent positions at the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art in Gateshead, England, and at the Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst-Smak in Ghent, Belgium. A worldly addition to our art world? To say the least.
