Marla Prather, who until recently was the curator in charge of postwar art at the Whitney Museum of American Art, has been named curator of American art at the Tate in London. The job is part-time and Prather will remain in New York, helping the Tate build its collection of American art. “We have had curators based in London who have been interested in American art,” Sir Nicholas Serota, the Tate’s director, told Carol Vogel of the New York Times, “but it became increasingly clear that it would be helpful to have someone in New York.”
