The Senior Curator brings insightful and seasoned leadership to CAMH’s Curatorial Department, which
encompasses exhibitions, community projects, and artist-driven initiatives in the public realm. The role offers a rich platform for a curator who is equally committed to making impactful exhibitions, directly engaging with communities, and imagining new possibilities for artists to work at civic scale.
The ideal candidate works from a position of deep integrity, curiosity, and ambition. CAMH seeks a leader who balances joy and a sense of humor with intellectual rigor and a disciplined approach to managing complex
projects. You bring a collaborative, influencing style of leadership rooted in care for your colleagues and a
commitment to the broader success of the Museum. As a key member of the senior management team, you will
manage and advocate for the Curatorial Department, and counsel and collaborate with the Executive Director
and senior colleagues on strategic goals.
The ideal candidate keenly understands the specific context and opportunities of contemporary and artistcentered organizations—their curatorial practice seeks to cultivate trust of artists and care for community.
The Senior Curator will chart an adventurous path for CAMH that elevates artists, authentically engages
diverse audiences, and meaningfully engages the public life of our community and city.
