The Dallas Morning News reported today on the abrupt resignation of the Dallas Museum of Art‘s Senior Curator Gavin Delahunty.

The DMA has released the following statement by Delahunty:

“Today I am announcing my resignation as the Hoffman Family Senior Curator of Contemporary Art at the Dallas Museum of Art, effective immediately. I am aware of allegations regarding my inappropriate behavior, and I do not want them to be a distraction to the museum or to my colleagues. I offer my deepest apologies to those who have been affected by my behavior. I will be taking this time to spend with my family.”

Delahunty started at the DMA in 2014 after a stint at Tate Liverpool. He curated the internationally acclaimed DMA exhibition Jackson Pollock: Blind Spots in 2016, and was the key curator for the DMA’s current big video show Truth: 24 Frames Per Second.
