The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston announced today that Matthew Teitelbaum will succeed Malcolm Rogers as their next director. Rogers will end his 19-year term in August.
Teitelbaum, who currently serves as director and chief executive of the Art Gallery of Toronto, will become the MFA’s 12th director since the museum’s founding in 1870. He began his directorship at the Ontario gallery in 1998, during which time he oversaw a $306 million expansion and renovation of the Frank Gehry-designed building, according to an article in the New York Times.
On Rogers’ replacement, MFA chairwoman Lisbeth Tarlow said in the same article, “We really see the mission as building on [his] legacy. We have to bring in other voices.”
