HOUSTON, TX.- The staff at the Moody Center for the Arts at Rice University will grow this fall as it adds two associate curators. Ylinka Barotto, former Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum assistant curator, and Frauke V. Josenhans, former Yale University Art Gallery associate curator, will be responsible for developing, organizing and executing visual art exhibitions and projects for both the Moody and Rice Public Art.

“We are delighted to welcome Ylinka Barotto and Frauke Josenhans to our dynamic team” said Alison Weaver, the Suzanne Deal Booth Executive Director of the Moody Center for the Arts. “We’re looking forward to the creative contributions these two talented women will make in support of the Moody’s mission to foster interdisciplinary conversation through the arts. Through projects that engage both the Moody and Rice Public Art, we have the opportunity to broaden the conversation across fields of research and to engage diverse communities, both on and off campus.”

Barotto joins the Moody from the Guggenheim in New York, where she most recently served as assistant curator, working on major modern and postwar retrospective exhibitions. She contributed to the Guggenheim’s Summer of Know series, moderating conversations between contemporary artists, activists and journalists to explore pressing social and political issues. She also helped shape the Guggenheim permanent collection with acquisitions of emerging artists through the Young Collectors Council.

Josenhans was formerly the Horace W. Goldsmith Associate Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Yale University Art Gallery, where she curated exhibitions and organized rotating installations of the modern and contemporary art galleries. She also helped acquire works by contemporary artists and mentored students. Prior to Yale, Josenhans worked at several other cultural institutions in Europe and the U.S., notably the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, where she helped organize various international loan exhibitions and curated diverse collection-based exhibitions. She has written and contributed to English, French and German art historical journals, books and catalogues, focusing on global modern and contemporary art.

Barotto received a master’s degree in curatorial studies at Accademia delle Belle Arti di Brera in Milan and completed coursework toward a master’s degree in art history at Hunter College, City University of New York.

Josenhans has graduate degrees in art history and museology from the Sorbonne and the École du Louvre in Paris, and a Ph.D. in art history from the Aix-Marseille Université in France.
