The Cleveland Museum of Art appoints Nadiah Rivera Fellah Associate Curator of Contemporary Art

CLEVELAND, Oct 18, 2019: The Cleveland Museum of Art (CMA) has appointed Nadiah Rivera Fellah as associate curator of contemporary art. She will help further develop the museum’s contemporary art program with Emily Liebert, curator of contemporary art; help plan exhibitions at the CMA, Transformer Station, and displays in the museum’s contemporary art galleries; and help acquire works of contemporary art for the permanent collection.

Ms. Fellah assumes her responsibilities at the CMA in early November. “I am thrilled that Nadiah is joining the museum at this time. Her expertise in Latin American and global contemporary art will be an asset to the museum as we continue to grow our contemporary program,” said Director William M. Griswold. “Nadiah combines her talent as a curator with a deep commitment to making contemporary art accessible to a wide range of audiences. We very much look forward to having her as a colleague in Cleveland.”    

“I am looking forward to cultivating new and progressive contemporary programming at the world-class Cleveland Museum of Art. I am delighted to be working with Emily Liebert and a fantastic team of colleagues. I’ve long been committed to fostering diversity in both museum collections and communities; I look forward to contributing to such initiatives in Cleveland,” said Ms. Fellah. 

Since 2015, Fellah has served in various capacities at the Newark Museum in Newark, New Jersey. Most recently at Newark, she curated the celebrated exhibition Wendy Red Star: A Scratch on the Earth, and served as the primary author and editor for the accompanying catalogue. Ms. Fellah was tasked at the Newark Museum with integrating several Latin American works into the US-American galleries prior to the wing’s expansion. In 2014, she curated Left Coast: California Political Art at the James Gallery at the CUNY Graduate Center in New York. The exhibition, which included three new commissions, explored the ways that art in California since the 1980s has reflected contemporaneous political struggles.
