Curator Wanted for Barbican Gallery
This just came across the transom:
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a creative and dynamic curator to join Barbican Art Gallery, a leading London venue for the presentation of modern and contemporary art, photography, architecture and design exhibitions. Part of the Barbican Centre, Europe’s largest arts venue, the Gallery’s activities take place in the context of a widely acclaimed programme of international music, dance, theatre, visual arts and cinema.
As curator, you will work with the Head of Art Galleries and Senior Curator to deliver our world-class exhibition programme. You will contribute imaginative and innovative ideas to the Gallery’s programming discussions; you will have a flair for devising authoritative exhibitions which also appeal to wide audiences; and you will work to build the Gallery’s relationships with artists and institutions in Britain and abroad.
We are looking for a curator with a thorough knowledge of 20th and 21st century art and/or design and architecture. You will have substantial experience curating and organising major loan-based exhibitions, in commissioning and editing publications, and in leading teams to deliver complex projects. Outstanding interpersonal and communication skills are essential.
