Congratulations to Performance Studies alum Johanna Burton (MPhil '02), who has been appointed the new director of the Wexner Center for the Arts!

From the New York Times:

"The Wexner Center, which will be celebrating its 30th anniversary next year, includes 13,000 square feet of gallery space; a black-box theater that accommodates 150 to 500; a film and video theater that seats about 300; and the Mershon Center stage, which seats 2,500 for dance, music, theater, multimedia productions and lectures. It was conceived from the beginning as a place devoted to the most advanced ideas in contemporary art.

It also advocates artist experimentation, by those both well-established and newly emerging — and that is something Ms. Burton aims to preserve and expand upon."
