Kelly Baum, who for past five years has served as the Haskell Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Princeton University Art Museum, will join the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Modern and Contemporary curatorial team.

The hiring comes at an important time, after the museum has announced plans to renovate their Modern wing and that in March of 2016 it will expand into the old Whitney Museum building. The building will be known as the Met Breuer and will focus on Modern and Contemporary exhibitions.
