Bergdoll, who has been the Philip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture and Design at New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) since 2007, will assume the Meyer Schapiro Chair in the Department of Art History and Archaeology on Sept. 1. While at MoMA, he taught part-time at Columbia, where he has been a professor since 1985. He also helped create an ongoing partnership between the two institutions, which has resulted in such joint projects as the acquisition of the Frank Lloyd Wright archives in 2012.
