A Monday like this excites you
You kick-start the day by joining the weekly start-up Collection & Exhibition team meeting. After grabbing a coffee, you lead the next weekly meeting with your Collection team. You check-in with them so you understand how they are doing and where they might need your help with in the coming week, always leading by example. Time to check your incoming emails, you follow-up with a potential collaboration with a private collector and secure a follow-up meeting together with the Chief Exhibition and Collection Officer. After your emails you have a meeting with the exhibition team to discuss the production plan of an upcoming collection change. Now, time for lunch! In our gorgeous office space at our Head Quarters next to the Museumplein you have lunch with approximately 25 art lovers/colleagues that come from all over the world. After lunch you continue working on the Collection strategy for the upcoming new museum location and research protentional acquisitions and loans. Then, time to go over the logistic timelines and budgets for the upcoming exhibition and update the collection reports. Is it that late already? Time to go home!
