Anne Ellegood is senior curator at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. Prior to this position, she was the curator of contemporary art at the Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C. from 2005–09. Before joining the Hirshhorn, she was the New York-based curator for Peter Norton’s collection, an ambitious private collection of over 2,400 works of international contemporary art in all media. From 1998–2003, she was the associate curator at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York. Ellegood organized several noteworthy exhibitions for the Hirshhorn, including solo shows with Jim Lambie, Amy Sillman and Terence Gower, and thematic shows including The Uncertainty of Objects and Ideas: Recent Sculpture and Realisms. Co-organized with Kirsten Hileman, Realisms was the second half of a two-part exhibition, The Cinema Effect: Reality, Illusion, and the Moving Image, which examined artists’ depictions of the overlaps between reality and fiction in moving image works. Ellegood has contributed texts to a number of catalogues and written for such publications as Artforum and Art Press. She has served as a Center exhibitions panelist (2009), a Pew Fellowships panelist (2011), and an exhibitions LOI panelist (2012).
