Faculty and Director of Academics and Content, New York
Tim Goossens serves as Director of Academics and Content and a faculty member at Sotheby’s Institute of Art. Congruently and for almost 20 years, he has continued to also expand his curatorial practice with a variety of public art festivals, triennials, art commissions, and numerous exhibition projects worldwide, all of which inspired his past research as a contributing editor for Oxford University Press. Goossens began his career at The Museum of Modern Art, New York shortly after double graduate school in Paris, France, and in due course moved as assistant curator to MoMA PS1, where he worked closely with the founding director Alanna Heiss, renowned artists, and emerging talent alike. Following these museum positions, he became the founding director and chief curator of Ford Model's art gallery FordProject, on Manhattan's 57th Street, and a gallery director for New York's Envoy Enterprises.Read More
