SAN FRANCISCO, CA, USA, January 22, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Pier 24 The Museum of Photography announces the promotion of Allie Haeusslein to the Director. She will now work in tandem with the director Christopher McCall. Haeusslein has been Associate Director since 2012.
During her ten-year tenure, Haeusslein oversaw the museum’s in-house publishing program, producing more than ten books, including Photographers Looking at Photographs: 75 Pictures from the Pilara Foundation (2019), in which she invited artists from the Pilara Foundation Collection to write about the works they have selected from the collection.
After co-curating previous exhibitions, she served as lead curator for Looking Back (2019-22), the first of the institution’s tenth anniversary exhibitions; she is also responsible for the second of these anniversary exhibitions, Looking Forward, which is scheduled to open in spring 2022.
“She is an integral part of every aspect of our operations, from day-to-day management to exhibition planning. Pier 24 Photography would not be what it is today without her. McCall said.
“I am honored to have played a role in the development and trajectory of Pier 24 during its formative years,” said Haeusslein. “I am grateful to Andy and Mary Pilara and Christopher McCall for their support and this recognition. I look forward to continuing to advance the voice of photographers through our future exhibitions and publications.
Haeusslein holds a BA in International Studies from Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland, and an MA in Contemporary Art from Sotheby’s Institute of Art, London. She was born and raised in San Francisco.
Located on San Francisco’s Embarcadero, Pier 24 Photography is one of the largest spaces in the world dedicated to exhibiting photography. Since its opening to the public in 2010, Pier 24 Photography has offered a place to discover and quietly contemplate photography. Pier 24 Photography is home to the Pilara Foundation’s permanent photography collection, which includes more than five thousand works by more than 350 photographers.
