Directors appointed

The School of Art has appointed new directors for its sculpture and photography departments.

Associate professor Gregory Crewdson ’88MFA succeeds Tod Papageorge as director of graduate studies in photography. Crewdson was appointed to the Yale faculty in 1993. He has exhibited widely in the United States and Europe, and his work is represented in such collections as the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. He has received numerous awards, and several books of his photographs have been published over the last ten years.

Martin Kersels, who earned both undergraduate and graduate art degrees at UCLA, takes over as director of graduate studies in sculpture, following the departure of Jessica Stockholder for the University of Chicago. His projects have been exhibited at museums in the United States and abroad, and at both the 1997 and the 2010 Whitney Biennial of American Art. Before joining the faculty at Yale, Kersels was a faculty member and codirector of the art program at the California Institute of the Arts.
