Job Posting - Director of Artist Portfolio Management/Growth

About Us

At Curina, we are making art ownership easy and transparent through our art rental / rent-to-own service.   Our platform fosters next-generation art collectors and celebrates next-generation artists.

We are passionate about discovering, representing and empowering talented artists and connecting them to potential collectors (for both individual and business collectors). Curina currently has the largest portfolio for rental subscription with our partnership with art galleries and independent artists in New York. 

Curina has raised $1M to date from renowned angel investors and enterprises. Curina was featured in WWD, House Beautiful, and Elle USA
