The Board of Mudam invites applications from candidates interested in becoming the next Director of this internationally renowned museum of contemporary art which has become central to the cultural life of Luxembourg.

The museum, designed by the Pritzker-Prize winning architect Ieoh Ming Pei and situated in the historic Parc Draï Eechelen, is home to a collection of contemporary art and is one of the country’s most important cultural institutions since its opening in 2006. Mudam’s ambitious artistic and educational programme, developed for a diverse public, encompasses exhibitions, performance and public programmes supported by research and publishing activities.

In the new Director, the board seeks an inspirational, dynamic leader with strategic vision, an international reputation for curatorial excellence and with good international networks. They will be capable of inclusive staff management and of the sound management of financial resources. Candidates will need to be able to work constructively with the board, major stakeholders and the staff of the museum.
