Lars Nittve was born in Stockholm in 1953. He received an MA from Stockholm University and was awarded an honorary PhD in 2009 by Umeå University in Sweden. Nittve previously studied at the Stockholm School of Economics and New York University, wrote extensively as an art critic for the Stockholm newspaper Svenska Dagbladet and the magazine Artforum during his academic years, and taught art history at the University of Stockholm from 1978 to 1985. In 1986 Nittve was appointed chief curator at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm. In 1990 he was selected as founding director of Rooseum Center for Contemporary Art in Malmö, Sweden, and later went on to serve as director of the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebaek, Denmark, first director of the Tate Gallery of Modern Art in London, and director of Moderna Museet. From 2011 to 2016, Nittve was the executive director of M+ in Hong Kong. He has since been CEO and chairman of Nittve Information, Hong Kong and Sweden.
Jessica Morgan joined Dia Art Foundation as director in January 2015, and was named Nathalie de Gunzburg Director in October 2017. At Dia, Morgan is responsible for strengthening and activating all parts of Dia’s multivalent program, including its pioneering Land art projects, site-specific commissions, and collections and programs at Dia:Beacon, as well as reinvigorating its artistic and intellectual presence in New York City. Prior to assuming her position at Dia, Morgan served as the artistic director of the tenth Gwangju Biennale in 2014, the Daskalopoulos Curator, International Art, at Tate Modern in London from 2010 to 2014, and as a curator at Tate from 2002 to 2010. At Tate, she organized a number of important exhibitions including the group show The World Goes Pop (2015–16) and retrospectives Saloua Raouda Choucair (2013), Gabriel Orozco (2011), and John Baldessari: Pure Beauty (2009–10). In addition to her work on exhibitions, Morgan played a key role in the growth of Tate’s collection—helping develop the museum’s holdings of mid-century and emerging art from North America, the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia—and worked extensively with the institution’s International Council. Morgan received her MA in art history from the Courtauld Institute of Art, University of London.
