Constance Clement

Deputy Director, Yale Center for British Art

While her initial role at the YCBA focused on the public dimension of the museum, Cecie Clement now devotes most of her time to the conservation of the Center’s landmark building by American architect Louis I. Kahn. In addition to assisting two UK-based architects with the development of a “conservation plan” for the  YCPA (published in 2011), she has been involved in a wide range of building projects, including the creation of a paintings conservation studio and imaging room, the rehabilitation of the Center’s Lower Court, the refurbishment of two curatorial departments, the public galleries and the lecture hall, as well as mechanical and electrical upgrades, and efforts to address code and accessibility concerns.
