Amy Smith-Stewart named Senior Curator at Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum
Smith-Stewart has organized more than sixty exhibitions in museums, collections, galleries, and temporary spaces.

RIDGEFIELD, CONN.- The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum announced that it has appointed Amy Smith-Stewart as Senior Curator. Smith-Stewart has been Curator at the Museum since September 2013 where she has organized twenty-nine exhibitions and projects. On view now at the Museum are three exhibitions organized by Smith-Stewart, Harmony Hammond: Material Witness, Five Decades of Art (accompanied by the artist’s first hardbound monograph co-published with Gregory R. Miller & Co.); N. Dash; and Sara Cwynar: Gilded Age.

Smith-Stewart’s unique perspective has brought artists to The Aldrich during seminal stages of their careers—up and coming artists, such as Hayal Pozanti, Julia Rommel, David Brooks, Xaviera Simmons, Virginia Overton, and Jessi Reaves and mid-to-late career artists such as Mary Beth Edelson, Jackie Winsor, Suzanne McClelland, Ruth Root, and B. Wurtz. Future curatorial projects at The Aldrich include first-time solo museum exhibitions of Eva LeWitt, Genesis Belanger, and Lucia Hierro.

“During her tenure at The Aldrich, Amy has organized incredible exhibitions that have brought deserving artists and bodies of work the attention they deserve—an undertaking at the heart of the Museum’s mission. I’m particularly delighted by the work she has done to bring women artists to The Aldrich, as evidenced by the three stellar shows she organized that are currently on view by Harmony Hammond, N. Dash, and Sara Cwynar,” stated Cybele, Maylone, Executive Director at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum.

Smith-Stewart has organized more than sixty exhibitions in museums, collections, galleries, and temporary spaces. She began her career as a curator at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center (now MoMA PS1). Prior to working at The Aldrich, she was the founder of the eponymous nomadic curatorial project, Smith-Stewart, located on the Lower East Side, a curatorial advisor for the Mary Boone Gallery, and the 2006-08 Guest Curator for the Peter Norton Collection. She has also served on faculty at the School of the Visual Arts, MFA Fine Arts department and the Sotheby’s Institute of Art MA Contemporary Art program.
