ARoS Aarhus Art Museum announces the appointment of Catherine Ince to the new position of Director Exhibitions and Programmes

ARoS Aarhus Art Museum is delighted to welcome Catherine Ince as its new Director of Exhibitions and Programmes. She joins the newly created leadership team headed by Museum Director Rebecca Matthews. 

Catherine Ince leaves the post of Chief Curator of V&A East, a new museum and collection research centre, currently under construction in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park London. Here she has led the curatorial and creative programme planning for both sites under Gus Casely-Hayford for the past 6 years.  Prior to this, Ince was senior curator V&A, and curator at the Barbican Art Gallery.

Ince joins ARoS at a time of expansion and new visioning as the museum establishes the audience experience of The Dome, a Skyspace by James Turrell, and undergoes site development to achieve next level spaces and opportunities. She will lead the curatorial approach, collection dimension, and public engagement activities that reach and grow the large audiences already devoted to attending programmes at ARoS. 

“Catherine Ince was selected from an outstanding national and international list of candidates for this important position in our team. She brings a wealth of experience and a set of unmatchable skills. As Chief Curator leading work in establishing the V&A East, with notable experience in programming and team development in a variety of positions including the Barbican Centre and the British Council, Catherine is ideal for this exciting challenge,” says Museum Director Rebecca Matthews, ARoS. 

Ince brings a portfolio of knowledge that encompasses visual art, applied design and architecture. Her experience in setting exciting and innovative collection access and creating engaging exhibitions and public programmes events ensures a bright future for ARoS and its plans. 

“I am thrilled to join ARoS at this exciting moment of expansion and transformation. I look forward to working closely with Rebecca Matthews and the rest of team to shape ARoS’ future programme, maintaining its position as a leading cultural destination in Denmark and important international platform for historical and contemporary art. ARoS is a warm and generous public space where visitors come to enjoy, discover, learn, rest and play. I also look forward to making this cherished museum a vital space of creative encounter in the city: one that embraces a diversity of ideas, transformative experiences, and artistic practices from across Denmark and the world,” says Catherine Ince

Catherine Ince will join the ARoS’ team on February 1, 2023.
