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 the majority 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 Center (published in December 2011), she has been involved in a wide range of building projects, including the creation of a paintings conversation studio and imaging room, the rehabilitation of the Center’s Lower Court, and the recent refurbishment of two curatorial departments. She is currently working on the second phase of the interior refurbishment of the Center, planned for 2015. This project will encompass the public galleries and the lecture hall, as well as mechanical and electrical upgrades, etc., and will address code and accessibility concerns.
