- MASS MoCA
Thank you for your interest in joining the MASS MoCA team! If you love the arts, and take pride in working hard with a dedicated team, we hope you find a position below that fits your skills and experience.
MASS MoCA strives to be a welcoming environment that encourages free exchange between the making of art and its enjoyment by the public. We are committed to inclusion and diversity among our staff, artists, patrons, and guests alike.
The Lead Registrar/Exhibition Manager works with the Visual Arts team to assist in all aspects of exhibition planning, registration, shipping, insurance, care of art, and deadline management to ensure exhibitions open on time, on budget, and at the highest possible quality.
MASS MoCA is a vibrant non-collecting art museum with approximately 300,000 square feet of exhibition space. Half of that space is dedicated to rotating 10-month exhibitions of which we present 4-6 per year. The additional space is dedicated to long-term exhibitions in conjunction with artists, estates, and collections that run from 10 to 25 years. MASS MoCA frequently works directly with artists on the fabrication of new work. Work commissioned by MASS MoCA often exists for the exhibition period only; therefore, projects may contain materials easily replaceable or repaired using non-traditional conservation methods.
This position serves as a lead registrar, overseeing the assistant registrar in arranging shipping, tracking loan agreements, and coordinating maintenance conservation of work while in our care. The main responsibilities of this are as an exhibition manager who will build planning budgets for project feasibility; monitor, track, and report on final exhibition budgets; and approve all exhibition-related expenses in conjunction with the finance department and the Director of Exhibitions. Working collaboratively with visual arts and facilities staff, outside vendors, partner institutions, and artists, the Lead Registrar/Exhibition Manager will focus on value engineering, scheduling, resource management, and professional practices for art handling, shipping, and conservation. MASS MoCA works on tight budgets, so skillful procurement of economic material solutions, and a budget-conscious knack for obtaining the most cost-effective services and solutions, are a must for this job.
This position reports to the Director of Exhibitions and oversees the Assistant Registrar.
