London, UK

At Tate Modern our aim is to provide public access to some of the most interesting and ground-breaking modern and contemporary art in the world. To ensure the collection keeps developing and reflects the most outstanding art of our time we’re currently seeking a Curator of International Art to join the team.

Youll have a broad knowledge of modern and contemporary international art as well as specialised knowledge of at least one area beyond Tate’s traditional knowledge base in Western European and North American Art. You’ll take a lead in researching and acquisition of new works of art for the collection and contribute to the formulation of acquisition strategy by collaborating with other members of our team. Your first class research skills will enable you to find and propose new acquisitions and your established network of contacts will allow you to advise the Head of Collections, International Art on developments in the field. You are able to write authoritative texts for a specialist readership, along with more accessible texts for the public and will have the confidence to be an articulate spokesperson representing a high-profile organisation.

While the emphasis is on acquisitions, youll make a valuable contribution to the programme of exhibitions and displays at Tate Modern. Working to ensure that the most important modern and contemporary international art becomes part of the public domain, this is a rare and exciting opportunity to play a leading role in our organisation.
For an application pack and more information, please visit our website www.tate.org.uk or email jobs@tate.org.uk quoting ref: 6149/TM. Closing date: 5 February 2007.

Our jobs are like our galleries. Open to all.
