Come and join our team if you can be described as a diplomatic, charismatic, sympathetic and passionate expert with a broad worldview, you hold a university degree, preferably in art, history or cultural studies, and your areas of interest are:

–contemporary art in its various manifestations
–interaction between different fields in art
–an active intellectual exchange between art and society and what links them

–international art projects

You should accept this challenge if you are familiar with the functioning of the international contemporary art world and its connections and are able to discuss complex phenomena in a clear and easily understandable way. A wide network of contacts, an unfettered approach and ambition will also be beneficial.

Your main job in our growing team will be to continue the content work already underway as well as initiate new projects, create an international network and shape the public image of the Art Hall in the international art scene, as well as to realise your own unique vision and exhibition programme at Tallinn Art Hall.

As one of the three curators at Tallinn Art Hall, you will be working on the programme of exhibitions and events, supporting artists and the work of guest curators, and establishing relationships between actors in the art scene both in Estonia and elsewhere. We expect you to be well versed in international art life, be able to write curatorial texts and compile a large-scale exhibition at least every two years.

We offer
–a commensurate remuneration package
–creative freedom and a pleasant working environment
–an opportunity for self-realisation in a rapidly evolving institution

To apply for the position, please send us your curriculum vitae with a portfolio of your previous projects supplemented by a presentation of your vision of what you would like to accomplish at Tallinn Art Hall over the next three years (on three Powerpoint or PDF slides). Please also indicate which motivation package would make you happy.

Candidates selected for the final round will be invited to a workshop conducted by a leading career advisor. All candidates in the final round will be given personal feedback. Tallinn Art Hall will cover the travel costs of candidates from outside Estonia.

Tallinn Art Hall is Estonia’s central exhibition venue for contemporary art, operating since 1934. 15 contemporary art exhibitions are organised each year in its three exhibition spaces on Tallinn’s central square and surroundings. Our diverse programme covers solo exhibitions as well as international group exhibitions both by guest and in-house curators. Our main focus is on the present, and with our exhibitions we wish to offer opportunities to create new work. Our ambition and field of activity has international scope; at the same time we are also responsible for the success of the active and abundant local art scene, for the creation of art and, as one of the oldest art institutions locally, also for the history of Estonian art. We are a public cultural institution funded principally from the state budget.
