Tate Modern Director Vicente Todoli Steps Down

Vicente Todoli is stepping down as the director of the Tate Modern in London after running it for seven years of its decade-long existence. Todoli previously ran the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art in Oporto, Portugal, after which he says he had always intended to take a break from his career. Under his direction, the Tate Modern has, The New York Times says, “organized several major exhibitions that have sought to redefine early modernism, including shows of the work of Kandinsky in 2005 and Duchamp, Man Ray and Picabia in 2008.”
