As the Assistant Curator, Molly Everett organizes interdisciplinary exhibitions and programs with the curatorial team while supporting the research and acquisition of new artworks and site-specific commissions for the Rice Public Art Collection. In her role, she collaborates closely with artists, faculty, and students to foster cross-campus and community engagement through the arts. Everett previously served as the Curatorial Assistant in the Modern and Contemporary Art Department at the Menil Collection in Houston, where she worked on international loan exhibitions as well as collection-based exhibitions while assisting with the care and expansion of the permanent collection. Prior to the Menil, Everett worked at the LUMA Foundation developing exhibitions and projects in New York, Arles, and Zurich, and supporting artists to realize new work, site-specific installations, and publications. Through participation in the Whitney Independent Study Program in New York and a curatorial residency at the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo in Turin, Everett cocurated exhibitions that featured artwork by emerging and established contemporary artists working across disciplines. She studied art history at the University of California, Berkeley, and Hunter College, City University of New York.
