Job: Curator of Photography and International Art

Posted by Michelle Kasprzak • Wednesday, December 17. 2008 • Category: Jobs & Opportunities
Tate is seeking an experienced curator of modern and contemporary photography with the authority and reputation to bring about a quantum change in Tate's ability to collect and show photography at Tate Britain and Tate Modern. In this prominent new role, you'll be based within the curatorial department at Tate Modern, but will work across both Tate Britain and Tate Modern working on the acquisition and research of photographic works for the Tate Collection. In addition, you'll contribute to the conception and delivery of the photography exhibition programme at Tate Britain and Tate Modern.

You must have a high level of knowledge of the issues surrounding collecting modern and contemporary photography for museums and extensive experience of the process involved in staging displays and exhibitions, including managing budgets. Confident in your subject knowledge, you must have the authority to be able to guide and advise the Heads of Collections on acquisition strategy and the flair to make an active contribution to the conception of photography-related displays and exhibitions across Tate.

Your degree and post-graduate qualification in photography or history of art (or another related field) will be complemented a proven track record in publishing and research and by significant experience of working in an art gallery, museum or collection setting. A natural collaborator, you'll be able to work effectively with colleagues across the organisation and your accomplished networking skills will mean you'll be able to draw on an established network of contacts in the photography field.
