In September Loring Randolph (BFA ‘04) will become the new director of the Nancy A. Nasher and David J. Haemisegger Collection. Based in Dallas, the Nasher Haemisegger collection comprises works dating from the post-war period to the present day and its works are regularly displayed in public exhibitions at museums. As Director, Randolph will assess and manage works, conduct research, and identify acquisitions for the collection.
“I have known Nancy and David for over 10 years and it was very natural for us to work together in this capacity,” Randolph said in a statement to ARTnews. “The recent isolation that COVID-19 has caused has made me acutely aware of how much I miss being around art, so I am really excited to get closer to the works in the collection and to go more in-depth with my research into artists’ practices.”
Randolph leaves her position as Director of Frieze New York, a role she has held since 2019. She previously served as artistic director of the Americas for Frieze Art Fairs from 2017. Randolph will continue her involvement with the fair as program director for its 2021 edition in New York and she will direct Frieze Sculpture at Rockefeller Center, which opens next month. She will also assist and consult with the transition of new leadership upon her departure.
