Wanna help the Metropolitan Museum and Sheena Wagstaff, its chairman of modern and contemporary art, decide what to do with the Whitney Museum’s current facility, which the Met will occupy (at least temporarily) once the Whitney decamps from its Breuer-designed facility for its new Piano-designed downtown digs?
Now you can!
ArtsJournal is currently running this classified ad on its homepage:
ASSOCIATE CURATOR (Modern American Art)
The Metropolitan Museum of Art seeks an ASSOCIATE CURATOR (Modern American Art). The specialist in twentieth century American Art will participate in research, development and active management of the Mod & Contemporary collection at the Met and the Breuer project; initiation of collection displays, major special exhibitions, publications and interpretation; and participation in all activities of the Dept (Modern & Contemporary Art). Application Deadline: March 18, 2013 at 10:00 AM. Send cover letter, indicating position of interest, resume, and salary history to: email@example.com
In strengthening its modern and contemporary ranks, the Met last November also named Nicholas Cullinan as curator in that department. Like Wagstaff, whose appointment was announced in January 2012, Cullinan is a Tate Modern alumnus.
If you discover any details about what they’re planning for the top secret, coyly named “Breuer project,” do let me know!
