Tate Publishing has appointed Jacky Klein to the role of executive editor, where she will take control of Tate’s book publishing programme.
In the new role, Klein will be responsible for Tate’s exhibition catalogues, exhibition-related books, standalone art books and children’s titles.
John Stachiewicz, publishing and commercial director, said: “Tate’s book publishing programme goes from strength to strength, and I’m delighted to welcome Jacky, whose arrival will enable us further to develop an already impressive list. Her unique experience, spanning both the curatorial and publishing worlds, coupled with her tremendous pedigree and great energy, will help us to develop some really exciting publishing and nurture the talents of the editorial team.”
Klein has previously held roles at Phaidon Press and Thames & Hudson, and has written several books herself, including a monograph on Grayson Perry (Grayson Perry, Thames & Hudson).
She said: “I am thrilled to be coming back to Tate as Executive Editor at a buoyant and dynamic time for the institution, with a vibrant programme of exhibitions and displays across the four galleries and the opening next year of the expanded Tate Modern. I look forward greatly to developing Tate’s art publications – both those connected to exhibitions and collections and for the wider book trade – and to building on the successes of a lively and creative programme, powered by Tate’s stellar relationship with artists, writers and designers.”
