Based in New York, Tate Americas Foundation is an independent US charity that supports the work of Tate by acquiring works of art and raising funds to support exhibitions, scholarships and education programs. Created in 1987 with an endowed fund and with current assets of $70m, Tate Americas Foundation has since raised over $325m and has purchased seminal works by high-profile artists including Louise Bourgeois, Philip Guston and Cindy Sherman. The Foundation strengthens Tate’s links with the North and South American art communities.
Tate is instantly recognisable as a world-leading art organisation, known for its substantive British and international modern and contemporary art collection. With a compelling and dynamic world-class exhibitions program, Tate is constantly ahead of the curve in promoting the understanding and enjoyment of art, championing its value to society. Over 8 million attendees a year visit its four galleries in the United Kingdom.
The Board of Trustees of Tate Americas Foundation now seek an outstanding individual for the role of Executive Director to lead the Foundation and enhance its impact. Reporting to the Board of Trustees and working closely with colleagues at Tate, the Executive Director will lead the Foundation’s strategy to grow relationships with collectors, galleries and donors in order to increase philanthropic funds and the acquisition of art.
With proven experience of high-value relationship development and income generation, the role of Executive Director is a career-defining opportunity for a forward-thinking, innovative leader who has a deep and authoritative knowledge of and passion for art.
