Soyoung Lee (CCL 2018) has been appointed Chief Curator at the Harvard Art Museums.
Soyoung was a member of this year's CCL cohort as a Curator in the Department of Asian Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, where she has overseen the Korean art collection since 2003. Her exhibitions include "Silla: Korea’s Golden Kingdom" and the recent show "Diamond Mountains: Travel and Nostalgia in Korean Art."

Soyoung joins the Harvard Art Museums under the leadership of Martha Tedeschi (CCL 2012), who notes: "[Soyoung's] experience as both a leader and scholar will be great assets as we continue to develop distinctive exhibition, publishing, and interpretive programs that leverage the wide-ranging nature of the museums’ remarkable collections."
