The Museum of Contemporary Art has added some new curatorial talents to their arts roster. Naomi Beckwith is one of them; she started at the MCA in May.

Beckwith comes from The Studio Museum in Harlem, where she focused on work from artists of African descent. That’s the experience and angle she plans on bringing to the MCA. Host Alison Cuddy caught up with Beckwith at the Mark Bradford exhibition, currently up at the MCA.
