Armory Center for the Arts names new director of gallery programs
The Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena said Friday that it has named Irene Tsatsos as its new director of gallery programs. She succeeds Jay Belloli, who retired in June after 20 years at the Armory.
Tsatsos assumed her position on Oct. 4, said the Armory. In addition to her new job, she serves as the Los Angeles director of the Artist Pension Trust, an investment program dedicated to the needs of emerging and midcareer artists.
Tsatsos worked at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York as the exhibition coordinator of the 1997 Biennial.
She also served as executive director of Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions in Hollywood during a turbulent period in the organization's history in the late '90s when artists mutinied against leaders, claiming the organization no longer served the interest of artists. Since leaving LACE in 2005, Tsatsos has worked as an independent curator and art advisor, collaborating with individuals and various institutions.
The Armory is a nonprofit organization that presents gallery exhibitions and engages in arts-related community outreach.
