Dia Art Foundation Names Matilde Guidelli-Guidi Curator and Department Co-Head

The Dia Art Foundation announced today that Matilde Guidelli-Guidi has been named curator and department co-head, alongside Jordan Carter. Guidelli-Guidi, who was previously an associate curator at the New York–based foundation, succeeds Alex Lowry, who will depart in October after eight years in the role. While at Dia, Guidelli-Guidi restarted the organization’s long-running lecture series “Artists on Artists,” which had been put on hold during the pandemic, and curated long-term installations at Dia Beacon by Mario Merz and Senga Nengudi. Alongside Donna De Salvo, she cocurated the 2022–23 exhibition “Jack Whitten: The Greek Alphabet Paintings,” also at Dia Beacon.

“I am delighted that Matilde Guidelli-Guidi will be taking this next step in her career at Dia,” said Dia director Jessica Morgan in a statement. Morgan further praised Guidelli-Guidi for her “sensitivity and vision,” saying, “As we look to our 50th anniversary in 2024, Matilde will be instrumental in shaping our evolving exhibitions and live programs, and in caring for our collection and constellation of artist sites around the United States and beyond.”

Guidelli-Guidi arrived to Dia in 2016 as an Andrew W. Mellon Curatorial Fellow, before being hired as an assistant curator in 2019 and promoted to associate curator the following year. She previously worked at institutions including the International Center of Photography, Paula Cooper Gallery, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, all in New York, and the Musée du Louvre in Paris. In her new dual roles, Guidelli-Guidi will serve as curatorial liaison for Dia Bridgehampton; Walter De Maria’s The Lightning Field, 1977, in New Mexico; and all of the foundation’s New York sites, which comprise Joseph Beuys’s 7000 Eichen, 1982–; De Maria’s The Broken Kilometer, 1979, and The New York Earth Room, 1977; and Max Neuhaus’s Times Square, 1977. She is additionally charged with helping to develop exhibitions and live programs at Dia’s various locations and sites, and to assist with acquisitions and publication development.

Guidelli-Guidi in a statement noted that she was “excited” to reflect upon the foundation’s history “while continuing to support artists in articulating critical ideas and dialogues that have yet to find a form or a place to unfold.”
