University of Vermont’s Fleming Museum Seeks Curator of Collections and Exhibitions
The University of Vermont is seeking to hire a curator of collections and exhibitions for its Fleming Museum of Art.
The curator will build community relationships and connections to the Museum’s 25,000+ global collection. In collaboration with community, cultural, and academic advisory groups, the curator will develop exhibitions of collection objects and non-collection exhibitions and will select traveling exhibitions.
The curator will collaborate with artists, scholars, and Museum staff to publish about its exhibitions and the collection. With input from advisors, the curator will recommend objects for acquisition, deaccession, and repatriation. The Fleming Museum is committed to becoming a transparent, responsive, and inclusive Museum as outlined in the Fleming Reimagined, a document created after the summer of 2020. The curator will share these ideals and implement them into every facet of their job duties; curating exhibitions, selecting acquisitions, publishing, collaborating with the community, and recommending objects for deaccession and repatriation.
The Curator develops and organizes a diverse and thoughtful annual exhibition schedule, prioritizing exhibitions that are aligned with and promote the goals and evolution of the Museum’s institutional transformation work. The Museum’s priorities in developing these exhibitions are founded in collaboration with museum staff, artists, community groups, and UVM faculty and student advisory groups. The curator will write and collaborate with others on texts to accompany exhibitions and on exhibition catalogs. The curator will assist the Curator of Education and Public Programs on program planning in conjunction with exhibitions.
