LA curator to head Amsterdam's Stedelijk Museum

Amsterdam's Stedelijk Museum says it has appointed American Ann Goldstein as its new artistic director from 2010.
Goldstein is currently senior curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles.
The Stedelijk is currently undergoing a major renovation and is due to reopen in March or April 2010. It is holding an exhibition in the nearby Van Gogh Museum.
Tuesday's statement says Goldstein was the unanimous choice of the museum's board and says her appointment underscores the museum's image as a showcase of modern and contemporary art and artists.
Goldstein says she is honored to be leading the museum at an "exciting and decisive moment in its history."
Goldstein succeeds Gijs van Tuyl, who has led the museum since 2005.
