Over our 23 year history ARTSPACE has been led by seven Directors, each of whom has offered a passionate perspective on contemporary art and its changing conditions. We now seek applications for the role of Director for a three year period from April 2011 to bring a fresh and distinctive vision to leading our programmes in fulfillment of our mission to bridge the experimental to the mainstream, the artist to a critically engaged audience, and New Zealand practice to the rest of the world.

We are looking for someone with good editorial skills, to maintain our vital publishing record.

ARTSPACE is guided by a strategic plan set by the Board of Trustees, to whom the Director reports. The Director oversees a small team of staff and volunteers, and liaises with cultural and funding agencies, actively supporting the growth and development of the gallery through patronage and audience development initiatives.

On offer is a fixed term contract for three years beginning in April 2011. Applications close 10 December 2010. For a full position description, please contact Annie Bradley at ARTSPACE – [email protected] or +64 9 303-4965.
