Margaret Andera

Margaret Andera has a history of over 20 years with the Milwaukee Art Museum. She began her tenure in 1989 as a curatorial intern, assigned to work on the newly acquired Michael and Julie Hall Collection of American Folk Art. She joined the staff full-time in 1993 as a curatorial assistant and advanced her expertise in contemporary art and the art of untrained artists. Andera has been serving in the role of interim chief curator since June 2017. In the role of curator of Contemporary Art, Andera has facilitated several important acquisitions of contemporary and self-taught work for the Collection and has been instrumental in establishing the Milwaukee Art Museum as a leading American institution for modern self-taught material. Among the exhibitions she has curated are “On Site: Andrea Zittel” and “Uncommon Folk: Traditions in American Art,” as well as “Vito Acconci: Acts of Architecture,” “Currents 36: Dirk Skreber” (whose accompanying catalogues are but a few of Andera’s several publications), “Current 37: Lawrence Weiner,” “Rashid Johnson: Hail We Now Sing Joy” and “William Kentridge: More Sweetly Play the Dance.”
