The MoMA’s Senior Art Curator of Architecture and Design, Paola Antonelli, was named Director of Research & Development this week by the museum’s Director Glenn D. Lowry. This new role is a mix of curatorial, design, and research, and was created as part of an effort to discover new prospects in the rapidly developing digital world.

Antonelli will continue her work as senior curator, which began with the MoMA in 1994. In her new position she will work to strengthen the relationship between different museum departments so that research can flow freely to respond to specific questions concerning digital endeavors. She will also examine cultural shifts and progress and present her research to various departments keeping MoMA at the front of digital and cultural research. The incentive is to propose “new ideas about the way culture, and museums in particular, live, operate and are experienced online and in person,” Lowry said in a statement.
