Seeks to Appoint New Senior Curator

The forthcoming Centre for Contemporary Art Nottingham (CCAN) is looking to appoint a Senior Curator with excellent creative and organisational abilities. He or she will work closely with the Director, Alex Farquharson, to develop an ambitious, innovative and diverse programme of exhibitions and other events in a new landmark building of around 3000 square metres, in the middle of Nottingham, designed by Caruso St John. He or she will be responsible for the day-to-day management of the exhibitions team.

The individual we are looking for will have excellent international knowledge of recent contemporary art; experience of devising and managing international exhibitions of both loaned and commissioned work; a proven ability to raise funds for projects; excellent written and oral communications skills; and an interest in art’s social, political and cultural contexts and frameworks. S/he will have an enthusiasm for teamwork and collaboration and a commitment to engaging creatively with diverse publics.

CCAN will be the East Midland’s flagship contemporary art venue. Starting this autumn, we are preparing an imaginative programme of off-site artistic and education events in anticipation of our opening in late 2008.

Nottingham is the cultural capital of the region, with one of the largest student populations in the UK per capita. It is well connected by train to London (1 hour, 41 mins) and other major British cities. East Midlands Airport, which is 11 miles away, serves many European destinations.

Salary: £28,770 to £31,339
