Increase awareness, understanding, and enjoyment of modern and contemporary art

This is a superb opportunity to use your curatorial flair and passion for modern and contemporary art to devise and deliver exciting exhibitions and displays for an iconic gallery.

Working within the Tate St Ives Programme Team, you’ll be involved in everything from developing new concepts, selecting artists, and researching provenance to co-ordinating installation and managing related publications. We’ll also look to you to engage in scholarly debate, contribute to our overall research programme and give lectures, gallery talks, and briefings. Building strong partnerships in the South West and maintaining a relevant international network will be a vital part of your remit.

The role calls for a successful track record of devising and delivering distinctive exhibitions and a comprehensive knowledge of the processes involved. This will be supported by an appropriate degree or equivalent and an in-depth knowledge of British and international contemporary art. A highly effective organiser, planner, and negotiator, your superb communication skills will be matched by your ability to manage budgets and people.

With four major sites across England, Tate holds the national collection of British art from 1500 to the present day as well as international modern and contemporary art. This is an exciting time to join us as we are embarking on the next stage of our development which will see the delivery of expanded gallery and learning facilities at Tate St Ives, the completion of Tate Modern and the further development of the visitor facilities and gallery spaces at Tate Britain. With all these developments, we aim to increase public awareness, understanding, and appreciation of this art. Join our committed team, and help take our collections to the widest audience possible.
