Employment Opportunity at the Center for Curatorial Studies and Hessel Museum of Art, Bard College


Employer Website:
Bard College seeks a Manager of Individual and Foundation Giving for the Center for Curatorial Studies. This is a full-time, exempt, 12 month per year position which can be divided between New York City and Annandale-on-Hudson, NY, with a combination of remote and in person work schedule possible.

The Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College (CCS Bard) is an exhibition and research center dedicated to the study of art and exhibition practices from the 1960s to the present. CCS Bard is home to one of the world’s leading graduate programs in curatorial practice: the study of historical models for the presentation and reception of art, and the development of new ones. This program is positioned within the larger Center, which includes the Hessel Museum of Art—with its permanent collection of over 3,000 works—and the Center’s Library and Archives. The CCS Bard Library and Archives is one of the foremost contemporary art research collections in the US focusing on post-1960s contemporary art, curatorial practice, exhibition histories, theory, and criticism. Since 1992, CCS Bard has presented more than 60 museum exhibitions, many of which have traveled to institutions around the world.

Bard College’s main campus is in Annandale-on-Hudson, N.Y., with 1,900 undergraduate students; the College also includes multiple graduate programs. The 1,000-acre campus sits along the Hudson River and offers the Fisher Performing Arts Center, and Hessel Museum of Art, and is the home of the Bard Prison Initiative, the largest college-degree-granting prison education program in the U.S. The Bard Network also includes several Bard High School Early Colleges across the country as well as international campuses and partnerships. The Bard Network is complex and demonstrates Bard’s priorities well in addition to the College’s emphasis on civic engagement.

Bard College is a private institution working in the public interest. Bard faculty and staff lead their students by example, building upon the existing network of boundary-breaking programs focused on rethinking who can and should be included in a liberal arts education. The successful candidate will excel at working in a community that is broadly diverse with regard to race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, and religion.
