Britt Salvesen has been named as Charlotte Cotton's succesor at LACMA and will start in October. She will be the new Department Head and Curator of the Wallis Annenberg Department of Photography, and the Department Head and Curator of the Prints and Drawings.
Now, what exactly Prints & Drawings has to do with Photography is a mystery to me, other than they are both on paper?
Maybe in these tough economic times we should just fire the Middle Eastern Art Curator and have the Latin American Curator handle both - you know, to save money...
Britt comes to LACMA from the Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona, where she served as Director and Chief Curator.
