The Center for Curatorial Leadership (CCL) equips curators with the tools to assume and succeed in art museum leadership roles in the rapidly evolving cultural climate of the 21st century. Founded in 2008, CCL delivers four annual instructional programs to art museum curators across the arc of their careers: the CCL Fellowship for senior curators; the CCL/Mellon Foundation Seminar in Curatorial Practice for advanced PhD candidates; an International Curatorial Institute, in partnership with the Museum of Modern Art, focused on curators of modern and contemporary art from around the globe; and an ongoing Alumni Platform that connects a growing network of 350+ graduates from across all programs. Combining finance, strategy, and management coursework with mentorship, practicum exercises, and other activities in the field, CCL believes that curators who not only take charge of the art in their care but who are also equipped with the training to be moral and equity-based leaders will be well-positioned to anticipate and address the issues and opportunities facing museums today. As a result of both the skills it imparts and the immense respect it enjoys in the field, CCL has an extraordinary record of empowering curators and placing its fellows in the uppermost ranks of the museum world.
We offer a flexible, inclusive work environment for talented individuals who are eager to contribute to CCL’s mission, and who respond to new ideas and initiatives within our field with insight, imagination, and sensitivity.
