High Museum of Art names Brett Abbott as new photography curator


Brett Abbott is the High Museum of Art’s new curator of photography. Abbott is currently associate curator in the department of photographs at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles — also the alma mater of his predecessor at the High, Julian Cox — and will join the High in April.

Abbott, who has been at the Getty since 2002, received the 2010 Lucie Award for Curator/Exhibition of the Year for his organization of the exhibition “Engaged Observers: Documentary Photography Since the Sixties” and its related publication. Abbott also received the 2007 Lucie Award for Curator/Exhibition of the Year for “Edward Weston: Enduring Vision” and edited its companion publication, “Edward Weston’s Book of Nudes.” Abbott received his Master of Arts in art history from Williams College in 2002 and his Bachelor of Arts in the same field from Stanford University in 2000.
