Kitty Scott is the new curator of modern and contemporary art at the AGO

The AGO announced today that it appointed Kitty Scott as its new curator of modern and contemporary art. Scott is currently the director of visual arts at the Banff Centre, and has over 20 years of experience working in museums. In a release, AGO director and CEO Matthew Teitelbaum said, “Her expertise will help us put Canadian artists on the global stage, bring the best of contemporary art to our city and present our prized collection in dynamic new ways.” Scott will be offering her own answer to the age-old question: “What is art?”

  • Seriously?

    This is the kind of lame-brained horse pucky that makes people think art is some colossal in-joke. The AGO just landed maybe the best contemporary curator in the country, and one of the best in the world; she’s going to have a huge impact on how the city’s premiere museum is seen and interacts with a local, national and global audience. A little advice: If you don’t know shit, don’t say shit, k?

  • Seriously?

    A small edit by me: I see you changed your idiotic headline at least. Good thinking.
