MoMA International Curatorial Institute

A pilot leadership program developed by MoMA and CCL for international curators of modern and contemporary art

CCL Program

CCL offers leadership training for art museum curators from all art historical specialties. Established in 2007, CCL’s core fellowship provides experienced curators with instruction from Columbia Business School faculty and exposure to real-world challenges faced by cultural institutions today.

CCL/Mellon Foundation Seminar in Curatorial Practice

In 2014, with the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, CCL launched this pilot seminar, which introduces art history doctoral candidates at the outset of their careers to the daily challenges and strategic questions of museum practice.

MoMA International Curatorial Institute

Also in 2014, CCL collaborated with The Museum of Modern Art’s International Program to design the International Curatorial Institute, an intensive workshop for modern and contemporary curators from across the world. The Institute allows CCL to extend the reach of its training model to a global curatorial community.
