Roxana Marcoci of the Museum of Modern Art’s photography department has been promoted to senior curator, the museum announced Thursday. She joined the museum in 1999 as the Janice H. Levin Fellow/Curatorial Assistant in the department of painting and sculpture, and steadily climbed the ranks to assistant curator in the photography department, then associate curator and was named a full curator in 2007. Her exhibitions have included “The Original Copy: Photography of Sculpture, 1839 to Today,” “The Shaping of New Visions: Photography, Film, Photobook” and–with Katerina Stathopoulou–the recent “New Photography 2013″ survey, which is currently on view.

In a statement, Glenn Lowry, MoMA’s director, said, “This promotion recognizes Roxana Marcoci’s exceptional merit and her unique contribution to MoMA…In her 14 years at the Museum, she has not only organized groundbreaking exhibitions, but also has played a significant role in highlighting and redefining the influential role of photography in contemporary art.”
