Christophe Cherix is The Robert Lehman Foundation Chief Curator of Drawings and Prints at The Museum of Modern Art.  He joined the Department of Prints and Illustrated Books as Curator in July 2007 after serving as Curator of the Cabinet des estampes in Geneva.  Cherix’s specialty is modern and contemporary art, with a particular focus on printed art of the 1960s and 1970s. At MoMA, he most recently organized Jasper Johns: Regrets (with Ann Temkin), an exhibition which premiered the artist’s most recent body of work, a cohesive group of paintings, drawings and prints. In addition, he organized numerous shows at the Museum, including Print/Out (2012), an exhibition on contemporary prints, artist books, and ephemera from the early 1990s to the present, and Contemporary Art from the Collection (with Kathy Halbreich; 2010–2011), an installation of the permanent collection from the 1960s to the present. His upcoming projects comprise an exhibition of the work of Yoko Ono during the 1960s (with Klaus Biesenbach, May 2015), and a retrospective of the work of Marcel Broodthaers (Spring 2016). He has been instrumental in the Museum’s recent acquisitions of the Daled Collection, the Seth Siegelaub Collection and Archives, and the Art & Project/Depot VBVR collection, which together have transformed the Museum’s collection of Conceptual art.
