She is the co-curator of the first retrospective of the drawings of Richard Serra that opened at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and traveled to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art before going to Houston in the spring of 2012.

She recently organized the commission for a film installation by Leslie Hewitt and Bradford Young with MCA Chicago and the Des Moines Art Center.
