Seeks to hire Director

The Power Plant at Harbourfront Centre
Toronto, Ontario
Application is open to international candidates
Close date: August 8, 2011


Leading The Power Plant is an exciting and high-profile position with one of Canada’s finest arts institutions, with high visibility globally. We seek a Director who will lead this dynamic and innovative public gallery in the heart of Toronto, a city of great cultural richness and diversity. The ideal candidate will have a passion for and knowledge of leading edge advanced visual arts, a record of success and expertise in fundraising, strong interpersonal and relationship building skills and proven leadership ability in all aspects of gallery administration. As well as profile-raising and leadership, you will provide strategic and financial direction for the gallery and will report to the CEO of Harbourfront Centre and The Power Plant’s Board of Directors.

You are a bright and astute personality who is an accomplished leader with energy, vision and enthusiasm. You love advanced visual arts, but equally you love people and connect easily with them, be they staff, stakeholders, or members of the community. As such, you will be both leader and ambassador for the gallery—building and sustaining positive relationships with the Board, staff, members, volunteers, artists, patrons, Harbourfront Centre management and Board, the local community and contemporary art organizations in Canada and internationally. You are a Director by nature and not primarily a curator. You are driven by leading an institution that thrives on all fronts and by providing the support needed by your staff to achieve their goals. Your fluency with emergent visual practice will provide guidance for the overall curatorial vision and support for the choices of your curatorial team. As the public face and spokesperson of The Power Plant, you will raise the gallery profile and grow its importance both in Canada and internationally.
