Do you have hands on experience of curating and managing ambitious exhibitions and related public events, including working with artists and fundraising and budgeting? Do you enjoy liaising with many partners and collaborators and contributing as part of a small and dedicated team? Are you a confident communicator, when speaking and writing, about contemporary art practice and able to produce texts for different audiences? If so, do please consider applying for this temporary part-time role. We are seeking an enthusiastic, dynamic person with prior experience of delivering exhibitions and events to the highest standards to join our team for twelve months, while Dr. Amy Tobin is undertaking a Leverhulme Fellowship.
The successful candidate will work especially on the delivery of upcoming exhibitions notably: ‘Sutapa Biswas: Lumen’ and ‘Howardena Pindell: A New Language’; and future exhibition development including: ‘Making New Worlds: Li Yuan-chia and Friends’ (curated by Hammad Nasar, Sarah Victoria Turner and Amy Tobin) and Barjeel Collection Displays.
This post is fixed-term for 1 year, three days a week. Much of the work can be undertaken away from the office.
We believe that diversity strengthens and enriches us. We are committed to helping to make the arts and cultural sector a more diverse and equal place. To this end we are actively seeking to diversify our staff and would particularly welcome applications from BIPOC people and people with disabilities.
