Senior Curator of Exhibitions
David Norr joined the Wexner Center for the Arts in 2014 to help shape the center's vital and rigorous exhibitions program. As senior curator of exhibitions, Norr collaborates on cross-disciplinary programs within the center and across the university, identifies visual arts residency award recipients, and cultivates audiences for the center’s exhibitions and related initiatives.
Prior to joining the Wexner Center, Norr served as chief curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland, organizing such exhibitions as Michelle Grabner: I Work From Home, a twenty-year survey of the artist’s work; Kate Gilmore: Body of Work; Corin Hewitt: The Hedge; Janet Cardiff and George Buress Miller: Paradise Institute; David Almejd: The Orbit; and the inaugural show for the center’s new building, Inside Out and From the Ground Up. He spent five years with the Institute for Research in Art/Contemporary Art Museum at the University of South Florida, Tampa and has lectured and published consistently over the last decade.
Norr, a Cleveland-area native, earned a B.F.A. in studio art from the University of Colorado at Boulder and an M.F.A. in sculpture from the Tyler School of Art at Temple University in Philadelphia.
