Cultivating spaces for extraordinary artists

Curator in Residence opportunity

In partnership with the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum and International Curators Forum, we are welcoming applications from curators, in particular those from underrepresented backgrounds, to develop a New Art West Midlands exhibition for autumn 2020.

Hosted by Culture Coventry at the city’s Herbert Art Gallery & Museum, we are looking for a dynamic individual with the vision and ambition to reflect the West Midlands’ visual arts in the widest sense.

The role is supported by International Curators Forum, bringing access to international networks and contexts – part of a distinctive professional development package that aims to create pathways into future opportunities.

Resulting in an exhibition of depth and relevance, and benefitting a broad constituency of diverse artists and audiences, the curator will apply a distinctive approach and perspective that extends beyond the mainstream to represent the region’s very best talent.

Deadline 5pm, Monday 5 August 2019
