Position Qualifications: The curator plans and organizes the daily and long-term activities of the gallery; provides leadership in the presentation, research, and display of contemporary American art consistent with the mission of the College and Freedman Gallery; and collaboratively creates and implements an exciting exhibition program to engage the campus and extended community. With the Director, Center for the Arts, and other staff, the curator plans and implements educational programs and marketing/PR efforts, plans and monitors budgets, writes grants and cultivates donors.

In our search for a new colleague to join our dedicated team, we look for demonstrated excellence and innovation in prior positions, and commitment to the values of liberal education in service to Albright’s mission, namely, “to inspire and educate the scholar and leader in each student, building on a strong foundation in the liberal arts and sciences and a commitment to the best of human values, fostering a commitment to a lifetime of service and learning.” That commitment includes attention to equity and inclusion in all aspects of our work.

Department: The Freedman Gallery has served the campus and community for more than 40 years. Currently, the Gallery hosts eight to ten exhibitions each year with shows rotating in the main gallery and project space. The gallery’s mission calls for a focus on “contemporary, living, American artists.” Exhibitions are typically organized by the gallery’s curator and may include works from our collection, loans from private collectors, galleries, and museums, loans and installations that come directly from artists, or traveling exhibitions. The curator regularly conducts research on emerging artists, makes studio visits to New York City and other major metropolitan areas, and attends important national and international festivals and biennales in order to bring to Albright some of the best work in all media: painting, ceramic, glass, wood, and metal sculpture, textiles, photography, printmaking and new media (digital/video arts). Additionally, the work of students is featured in the Annual Juried Student Show at the end of each spring semester.

The curator reports to the Director, Center for the Arts, supervises six to eight student gallery attendants, and may supervise additional interns in the arts administration program. The curator works with other CFA staff and part-time contract employees to provide for the needs of the Gallery. The curator works collaboratively with members of the Art Department and other faculty and staff on campus, as well as community members.

The Gallery is named after former Albright trustee and alumna, Doris Chanin Freedman. The Gallery has shown work from artists such as Jim Dine, Louise Nevelson, Frank Stella, Carrie Mae Weems, Sue Coe, Todd Siler, Clare Grill and many more. In 1990, with the assistance of a major National Endowment for the Arts grant, the College launched a $6.5 million building project under the direction of architect Adele Santos who collaborated with sculptor Mary Miss to create the central plaza and amphitheater that forms the heart of our Center for the Arts. Around this courtyard, Santos designed a south-wing to house the art department with studios for drawing, painting, printmaking, and for woodworking and ceramic sculpture. The north-wing houses the Freedman Gallery, originally designed as classic kunstellar or “white box.” With its temporary walls, the main gallery can be broken down into smaller spaces. However, the adjacent project space also offers options for exhibitions of smaller scale. The music department, with its studios, practice rooms, and Roop Hall performance space is located on the ground floor of the CFA’s northeast-wing. On the second floor of this wing, one can find the Wachovia Theatre, box office, and mezzanine, where special events and receptions are held. Altogether, the CFA provides a unique nexus for the multidisciplinary study of the visual and performing arts.

The Gallery’s collection numbers approximately 1,600 artworks with the bulk of materials being works on paper. The Gallery’s collection is maintained on the PastPerfect database, with an image inventory maintained on ArtStor for external use.
