MFA Boston Appoints New Ishibashi Assistant Curator for Japanese Art and Inaugural Assistant Curator of Islamic Art

The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), has announced the appointment of Ai Fukunaga as the Ishibashi Foundation Assistant Curator for Japanese Art and Dr. Nadirah Mansour as the inaugural Assistant Curator of Islamic Art

Since assuming her role in April 2022, Fukunaga has been working on a wide range of projects to contribute fresh and innovative perspectives on the Museum’s renowned holdings of Japanese art, including planning for exhibitions in Boston and Japan, cataloging the collection and researching acquisitions. She is the second assistant curator to hold the two-year position, which was established in 2018 through a $1 million grant from the Tokyo-based Ishibashi Foundation.

Working in collaboration with Islamic communities in the Greater Boston area and beyond, Mansour will draw on the Museum’s collection—among the most important holdings of Islamic art in the country—to create innovative exhibitions, publications and public programs. This new curatorial position—the MFA’s first focused solely on Islamic art—was established through a $2.5 million grant from Lilly Endowment Inc. through its Religion and Cultural Institutions Initiative, which was given to the Museum in 2020. Mansour will begin her new role at the MFA on September 1.
