WE ARE LOOKING FOR A CURATOR FOR A YEAR-LONG FUNDED PROJECT


27 June 2019

Deadline for applications: 26 July 2019

For narrated, BSL interpreted and subtitled information please view here

 

We are looking to appoint a curator who identifies as disabled to join us for a year-long funded project.

We are a gallery/ museum based in the centre of Middlesbrough in the Tees Valley that has an art collection, an exhibition programme and a busy programme of activities with the community.

We’re looking for someone to work with us from October 2019 to August 2020. Candidates should think of themselves as a curator who identifies as a disabled person. This project is part of a collaboration between MIMA, DASH, a disability-led visual arts organisation, and Midlands Arts Centre (MAC) and supported by Arts Council England.

The curator will work with the collection at MIMA to do research and put together a public project. We are open to any interests and specialisms. The project can take any form: it might be a series of public events, an exhibition, a publication, or something else.

While the curator is here at MIMA they will:

  • learn new skills
  • work up ideas with the support of MIMA’s team
  • develop and deliver a curatorial project at MIMA with our collection

There is a fee of twelve thousand pounds (£12,000) for the curator, a further five thousand pounds (£5,000) for the curator’s expenses and eight thousand pounds (£8,000) towards project costs.

Interviews will be held at MIMA week beginning 2 September 2019.
