-By Cody Calamaio



The Metropolitan Museum of Art has named Beatrice Galilee as the new Daniel Brodsky Associate Curator of Architecture and Design, in the Department of Modern and Contemporary Art in New York.

“Beatrice Galilee will join the staff of our Department of Modern and Contemporary Art as it expands to embrace a more global program and mandate,” Thomas P. Campbell, Director and CEO of the museum said in a statement. “She brings to the position her strong international experience in the presentation and study of architecture and design-related work."

The new position at the museum is one of two new curatorships recently endowed by Daniel Brodsky, the Museum’s Chairman, and his wife Estrellita B. Brodsky. The position will be responsible for the museum's architecture and design holdings, and expanded programing in both the main building and the Marcel Breuer-designed building on Madison Avenue that will be vacated by the Whitney Museum in 2015 and then occupied by the Met.”

Hers is one of two positions in the department that were endowed recently by Dan and Estrellita Brodsky. Their commitment to modern and contemporary art at the Met has been visionary, anticipating the new opportunities for programming in the Marcel Breuer-designed building on Madison Avenue that will be vacated by the Whitney Museum in 2015 and later occupied by the Met.

Galilee is a curator, writer, and educator, and was recently chief curator at 2013 Lisbon Architecture Triennale's Close, Closer exhibition. Educated in architecture at the University of Bath, with an Master's in architectural history from the Bartlett School of Architecture, Galilee has been an editor at Icon magazine, and contributing editor at Domus magazine. She is also an associate lecturer in the spatial practices program at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London.
