The Colby College Museum of Art currently holds more than 900 artworks by the artist Alex Katz, along with associated archival materials that make up the Alex Katz Collection. In addition, the museum has a related collection of approximately 500 artworks—ranging from American and European modernism, to folk art and contemporary art—acquired through gifts from the Alex Katz Foundation, which was established in 2004 by the artist.
Reporting to the Head Curator and working with the curatorial team and others associated with the Colby Museum and its Lunder Institute for American Art, the Katz Curator envisions and implements the research, presentation, interpretation, publication, and collection-care initiatives for the Alex Katz Collection and the Katz Foundation Collection at the Colby Museum. In this capacity, they are a key contributor to the museum’s exhibition and publications as a whole. They also work dynamically, consistently, and responsively with the artist, his representatives, and other stakeholders to further the study and knowledge of Katz’s work and the diverse circle of historical and contemporary artists represented in the Katz Foundation holdings.
