MACBA Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona is seeking to appoint a new Director, to lead the artistic direction of the Museum, following more than 25 years of growth and development for the institution. The museum is entering a new phase of growth with a capital expansion project that will increase the areas available for public use, also giving more prominence to the Collection. The new Director and their prior curatorial experience will be critical to the successful outcome of the project.

MACBA, which opened in 1995, has been key in the process of building an international public art collection in Barcelona with a distinctive role in contemporary art, research, reflection and dissemination. Renowned for its quality exhibition programmes and excellent research, the Museum has gained a leading position thanks to its own unique and innovative way of working, its ability to provide a platform for argument and debate and its mission to play its part in building a freer society with a sense of critique.

The Director is responsible for setting the curatorial strategy for the Museum Collection, defining its exhibition progammes and developing the research which underpins the current Collection and acquisitions to it. They will act as an effective ambassador for MACBA both  locally, nationally and internationally and will be an excellent communicator to stakeholders, media and the wider public to spread the word about the Museum and its work.

In the new Director, MACBA seeks a leader with an international track record for delivering an engaging exhibition programme and quality pubications and who can provide evidence of inspiring and motivating staff in the delivery of their vision. With experience of managing a collection, significantcuratorial experience and with a real commitment to the local community and the values of the organisation, the new Director will have strong networks internationally. They will be both a good collaborator, working side by side with the Chief Executive Officer, and someone able to build effective partnerships to further the work of MACBA as it embarks on the next chapter of its development. Fluency in Spanish is a pre-requisite.

Applications will be accepted until May 7, 2021. For further information, please consult the website of MACBA and contact selecciodireccio [​at​] macba.cat, copying Liz Amos on: liz.amos [​at​] lizamosassociates.com.
