ST. LOUIS, Nov. 7, 2019Hannah Klemm has been promoted to associate curator of modern and contemporary art, the Saint Louis Art Museum announced today.

Since joining the museum as an assistant curator in 2016, Klemm has curated several presentations of the museum’s Currents and New Media Series programs and she has co-curated the exhibitions “Kehinde Wiley: Saint Louis” and “Rachel Whiteread.”

“Visitors to the museum’s contemporary exhibitions and collection galleries have been the beneficiaries of Hannah’s insights and perspective,” said Simon Kelly, curator of modern and contemporary art. “Her research specialty in 20th-century and 21st-century German art is also an excellent complement to the museum’s collection.”

Klemm previously was the Fisher Collection Graduate Curatorial Fellow at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, where she has worked on the contemporary German art collection. She holds a doctorate from the University of Chicago, a master’s degree in art history from the Courtauld Institute of Art and a bachelor’s degree in art history with honors from Sarah Lawrence College. Klemm has received several fellowships and awards, including a 10-month research fellowship from the German Academic Exchange Service at Humboldt University in Berlin.
