Julian Rankin has served at MMA since 2010 in communications, community engagement, and leadership capacities. His departure from MMA for WAMA comes at the conclusion of a dynamic year for CAPE, which included newly engineered museum programs; a statewide listening tour in Mississippi communities; the inauguration of The Lab, a gallery space for co-creation between curators and visitors anchored by contemporary art acquisitions; and the first CAPE national artist residency, with New York-based artist Jeffrey Gibson. Rankin returns to MMA on Saturday, November 3 to participate in “WonderLust: Materiality and Movement in Mississippi,” a half-day program exploring a new video artwork created by Jeffrey Gibson as part of that 2018 artist residency in Jackson.
