The Renaissance Society at The University of Chicago has announced the appointment of Solveig Øvstebø as the organization’s first new Executive Director in nearly 40 years. Øvstebø is currently the Director of Bergen Kunsthall, a premier avant-garde contemporary art space in her native Norway. She will start at The Renaissance Society in June 2013 and, until that time, current longtime Executive Director Susanne Ghez will remain at the helm; a position she has held since 1974.
“The Renaissance Society has built a reputation for being artist-focused and identifying new art that is conceptually rigorous and formally strong,” said Greg Cameron, President of the Board of The Renaissance Society.
