Thelma Golden

Thelma Golden (born 1965 in St. Albans, Queens) is an American art curator, who is the Director and Chief Curator of The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York City, United States. She is noted as one of the originators of the term post-blackness. From 2017 to 2020, ''ArtReview'' chose her annually as one of the 10 most influential people in the contemporary art world.

From 1991 to 1998, Golden was a curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art, where she gained a reputation for promoting young black conceptual artists. In her 1993 biennial and her 1994 exhibition ''Black Male'', she introduced political and controversial works into the Whitney's collection. Golden joined the Studio Museum as Deputy Director for Exhibitions and Programs in 2000 before succeeding Lowery Stokes Sims, the museum's former director and president, in 2005.
