Agustin Arteaga, currently the director of the acclaimed Museo Nacional de Arte (MUNAL) is Mexico City, is the new Eugene McDermott Director of the Dallas Museum of Art, the museum just announced. He replaces Max Anderson, who stepped down suddenly last fall.
“He brings an international perspective to the DMA,” says Catherine Marcus Rose, president of the museum’s board of trustees. He brings more than 30 years of experience to the role.
Arteaga will be relocating to Dallas with his husband, Carlos Gonzalez-Jamie, in September.
