Current Opportunities

Genesis Young Curator 2019

Part-time: 4 days per week
Fixed Term: 12-month contract
Salary: £24,000 pro rata
Location: Barbican Centre, Tate Britain, Chisenhale Gallery

The Genesis Young Curator post responds to the acute lack of representation in the visual arts in the UK of young talented curators from diverse backgrounds.

The role is a one-year placement, working the equivalent of 3 days per week with exceptional artists on ambitious public projects at the host organisation Create London, delivering projects with diverse artists and communities in east London. We consider a Young Curator to be within 3 years of starting a career in the arts.

This role is offered by Create London in partnership with Tate Britain and Chisenhale Gallery.

For the first six months, the Genesis Young Curator will also spend the equivalent of one day each week working with the curatorial department at Tate Britain on the delivery of an innovative and culturally inclusive programme of exhibitions and displays.

For the following six months, the Genesis Young Curator will spend the equivalent of one day each week at Chisenhale Gallery, working with the curatorial team, with a focus on engaging a broad range of audiences in contemporary art practice.

Create London is committed to creating opportunities that are accessible and welcoming to all. As such we encourage applications from candidates from a broad range of backgrounds. Candidates with Black, Asian or minority ethnic heritage, those who are facing barriers due to difficult socio-economic situations and/or are disabled are particularly encouraged to apply for this role. The recent Panic! research commissioned by Create, which demonstrates a lack of representation within the arts sector of young professionals with these backgrounds, has provided particular impetus for this new role.

Application Deadline: Monday 17 December 2018, 12pm
