Fairfax Dorn, Ballroom Marfa‘s co-founder and outgoing executive director, is transitioning to Ballroom’s artistic director. Today the board has named Susan Sutton as its new executive director. Sutton comes to Marfa after four years as assistant curator of Houston’s Menil Collection. (Sutton recently organized the Menil’s “A Thin Wall of Air: Charles James.”)
Via Ballroom Marfa: “Sutton studied at Pratt Institute and San Francisco Art Institute and holds a bachelor’s in art history from the University of Houston and a master’s in art history of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas from the University of East Anglia in Norwich, England.”
Best wishes to Susan for all the success!
