MONTREAL, June 21, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - The Musée d'art contemporain de
Montréal Board of Trustees, chaired by Alexandre Taillefer, is pleased
to announce the appointment of its new Director, John Zeppetelli. Mr.
Zeppetelli, who has been with DHC/ART since 2006, will take up his new
role at the Musée as of Monday, August 12 this year.
John Zeppetelli brings many years of sound experience to the challenge
of developing a new strategic plan in conjunction with the Musée Board
of Trustees. Key elements in the objective of this new strategy will be
to better adapt the Musée to its patrons, to improve attendance, to
grow its self-generated revenues and to manage the MAC renovation
project. Other functions of his mandate are renewal of the program
line-up and development of the collection and the educational offer
within the framework of a relevant marketing strategy and a rethink of
the management of museum spaces. He will also be expected to maintain
close ties with the Musée's various stakeholders (the arts and business
communities, government and the general population) in Montreal,
Quebec, Canada and the international visual arts world.
Before he joined DHC/ART, John Zeppetelli designed public programs and
organized exhibitions at the Saidye Bronfman Centre for the Arts, the
Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal and the ICA in London. He also
worked in a major New York gallery while pursuing an independent study
program through the Whitney Museum. Mr. Zeppetelli has given
presentations on the history and theory of video art at the Nova Scotia
College of Art & Design and at Concordia University. He has also
organized media arts festivals in Canada and Europe. The works of this
award-winning filmmaker have, additionally, been screened
internationally at festivals and in galleries.
John Zeppetelli is the 10th Director of the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal, which will
celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2014.
