KANAL Foundation > Artistic Director (Belgium)
In the framework of its regional-interest mission, the KANAL Foundation is looking for an Artistic Director whose term is set to begin at the latest in September 2021 for a period of six years (renewable once for a three-year period, i.e. a maximum of nine years).
In the context of a ten-year structural partnership with the Centre Pompidou (2017–2027), KANAL Foundation is pursuing an artistic purpose whose main objective is to create a multidisciplinary arts and culture hub and a place of exchange open to all in the former Citroën garage on Place de l’Yser in order to highlight the contemporary Brussels arts scene and bolster the cultural appeal of the capital.
Supported by the Brussels-Capital Region, this ambitious project aims to provide Brussels with a twenty-first-century museum dedicated to modern art and the multidisciplinary contemporary arts scene (plastic arts, visual arts and performing arts) and the rich collections of architecture and urban planning of the CIVA Foundation. It will also house several multipurpose public spaces as well as functional spaces dedicated, among others, to the neighbourhood. It is, therefore, the very concept of the museum that KANAL is seeking to reinvent.
The Foundation aims to promote and disseminate all forms of art without exclusion and every study, research or project aimed at providing a better understanding of contemporary art to the widest possible audience.
As Artistic Director, you will be responsible for the multidisciplinary artistic project. KANAL Foundation offers a full-time, open-ended contract in the form of a term (six years, renewable once for a period of three years). Salary and benefits will be commensurate to your responsibilities and experience.
Deadline: 15 February 2021
