James Meyer.
The Dia Art Foundation announced today that it has hired James Meyer, an associate curator at the National Gallery in Washington, D.C., who is an expert in Minimalism, to be its new deputy director and chief curator. Charged with working on "the institution's curatorial, education, and publications departments, including its public programs," according to a news release, he is set to begin at the New York-based institution in January.
Meyer has been with the NGA since 2010 and is at work on one of the most hotly anticipated postwar-art shows in recent memory, "From Los Angeles to New York: The Dwan Gallery, 1959-71," which will take a look at Virginia Dwan's storied career as an art dealer. The result of a gift from Dwan to the museum, it will open next year and run into 2017.
Before joining the NGA, Meyer was an associate professor of art history at Emory University in Atlanta between 2002 and 2010. His writings about Minimalism have been widely read in the field.
"My own scholarship strongly relates to Dia's collection and curatorial program," Meyer said in a statement released to press.

In an important recent book on the subject, Emory University professor James Meyer has captured how the readings of minimalism changed over the first decade of its existence.
"It comes to be seen as this kind of anti-art art," Meyer said in an interview, "... but the aspiration of those artists was to make aesthetically powerful objects."He's pointed out that the cerebral reading of minimalism was important and fertile.
"With the object-ness, the factory-made-ness and the monochromy of a lot of these works, I'm just not sure that it's ever going to be a popular sell," said Meyer, the Emory art historian.
