Pittsburgh native Dan Leers has been appointed curator of photography at the Carnegie Museum of Art, filling the shoes of Linda Benedict-Jones, the museum's first curator of photography who recently retired. 

Leers, who served as an advisor on contemporary African art for the 2013 Venice Biennale, was previously the Beaumont and Nancy Newhall Curatorial Fellow in the Museum of Modern Art’s photography department. Most recently, he has been an independent curator in New York City. He begins his new position on April 27.
