In 2007 Carol K. Huh was appointed the first curator of contemporary art at the Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, which together constitute the national museum for Asian art at the Smithsonian Institution. Through exhibitions and public programs, she is responsible for further developing the galleries’ effort to explore current environments of social change and artistic production related to Asia. Recent projects have included exhibitions such as the museum’s ongoing Perspectives series (including works by Y. Z. Kami, Anish Kapoor, and Hai Bo), Moving Perspectives (a year-long series of exhibitions featuring video art from Asia), and a special exhibition of works by Fiona Tan. She completed her undergraduate and graduate studies at Georgetown University.
