New curator for museum


Kathryn Kanjo has been appointed the new Chief Curator and Head of the Curatorial Department of the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD).

Kanjo’s appointment concludes an international search. She is currently the director of the University Art Museum at UC Santa Barbara, and plans to assume her new responsibilities at MCASD on July 20, moving to San Diego with her husband, David Jurist, and their two children.

An accomplished scholar and author of numerous publications, Kanjo received her M.A. in Art History and Museum Studies from the University of Southern California and her B.A. in art history and English literature from the University of Redlands.
