The Dallas Museum of Art has announced that Charlie Wylie, their curator of contemporary art, will step down in June after 15 years at the museum. Wylie worked on major shows at the DMA, including solo traveling shows for Brice Marden, Thomas Struth and Sigmar Polke. He was the leader of the curatorial team that advised Gene and Jerry Jones on the artworks in the new Cowboys stadium, and he worked with Maria deCorral on the now-legendary Fast Forward show, the huge show that featured the bequests of major Dallas collectors to the DMA. According to the DMA, Wylie will work with Jeffrey Grove, the senior curator of contemporary art, on the transition and the search for a new curator will begin in the coming months.
