In addition to installation and de-installation of exhibitions, the Exhibitions Technician will be scheduled during some public hours and private events to provide support, including for the audio-visual (A/V) elements of exhibitions. Some weekend work will be expected.
For these shifts, and under direction of the Chief Preparator and Exhibition Designer, the Exhibitions Technician will be the exhibitions point person for all CJM staff, and will assume responsibility for the operation and maintenance of exhibitions, including regular art handling duties. The Exhibition Technician will be responsible for the overall look and function of all exhibitions during their shift.
