DMA GroveJeffrey Grove, the gay senior curator of contemporary art at the Dallas Museum of Art (whom we profiled here), has just been appointed to a new position within the museum.

Grove will now serve as senior curator of special projects and research, a newly created position, Maxwell L. Anderson, the DMA’s director, announced. Grove was most recently responsible for spearheading the Cindy Sherman exhibition, which is on display through June 9 (and well worth a visit). His upcoming projects for the DMA include a show featuring the work of Jim Hodges (opening in October) and a retrospective of one of the art world’s most influential women, Isa Genzken (opening in the fall of 2014).

A nationwide search is now under way to find a new curator of contemporary art to replace Grove.
