Lena Stringari Moves Up at Guggenheim Museum
The Guggenheim Museum in New York has named its longtime chief conservator Lena Stringari deputy director and Andrew W. Mellon chief conservator, a newly endowed position that is underwritten by a $3 million grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Stringari joined the Guggenheim in 1992, and has since organized several exhibitions, including “Jackson Pollock: Exploring Alchemy” in 2017 and “Imageless: The Scientific and Experimental Treatment of an Ad Reinhardt Black Painting” in 2008. In this new role, Stringari will continue to oversee the collection, while also leading the strategic planning and the direction of the Guggenheim’s conservation-focused programs. The grant also endows the creation of another new position, director of conservation engagement.
