Thomas Lax

1 September 2015

Thomas Lax made his name at the Studio Museum in Harlem, where he worked for seven years before joining MoMA in 2014, organising numerous exhibitions and performances with a focus on performance art, dance and video, as well as socially engaged art. Major projects there included ‘When the Stars Begin to Fall: Imagination and the American South’ (2014) and ‘Radical Presence: Black Performance in Contemporary Art’ (2013). Earlier this year he was awarded the Walter Hopps Award for Curatorial Achievement, and we can expect further groundbreaking work from him at MoMA.
