Michael Taylor

Virginia Museum of Fine Arts
Chief Curator and Deputy Director for Art and Education
Richmond, Virginia
I joined VMFA in 2015 as the Chief Curator and Deputy Director for Art & Education. A native of London, England, I served as Director of the Hood Museum of Art at Dartmouth College until March 2015. Prior to my tenure at Hood, I spent my career at the Philadelphia Museum of Art from 1997 until 2011, as the Muriel and Philip Berman Curator of Modern Art and Head of the Department of Modern and Contemporary Art. I am a scholar of Dada and Surrealism with a focus on the work and ideas of Marcel Duchamp.
