Beatrix Ruf Named New Stedelijk Museum Director
Longtime Kunsthalle Zürich director Beatrix Ruf will head to Amsterdam's Stedelijk Museum in November, according to a announcement on Tuesday. Ruf has been director at the Kunsthalle Zürich since 2001. She also advises publisher Michael Ringier on his collection, one of the largest in Switzerland.
Ruf was responsible for the Kunsthalle's move to Zurich's Löwenbräu art district in 2012 and curated the institution's current exhibition of Ed Atkins.
She will replace Ann Goldstein who left the Stedelijk last December after only three years at the recently-revamped institution.
