RIBA has an opportunity for an exhibitions curator to join its team in London.
RIBA is looking to appoint a part-time, fixed-term curator (exhibitions) to research, plan and manage all stages of exhibitions for the Architecture Gallery at 66 Portland Place, working closely with the head of exhibitions and interpretation and the wider public programmes team.
These are exciting times for us. It is a future ambition of RIBA to become the leading national voice for architecture by creating world-class exhibitions and events programmes for both a specialist audience and for the broader public. The newly built Architecture Gallery, located within RIBA headquarters at 66 Portland Place, signals the first important step in achieving these ambitions. To date, RIBA has showcased critically acclaimed collection-focused exhibitions as well as temporary installation by artists and architects, such as Assemble, Pablo Bronstein and Sam Jacob Studio.
You will have proven experience of working within a museum or gallery, with demonstrable understanding of contemporary curating strategies, in-depth knowledge of architecture history and theory as well as knowledge of processes relating to collection management and care.
You will have significant experience of delivering programmes on time and to the highest standard, with the ability to manage and monitor budgets. It is vital that you have excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to work collaboratively and diplomatically with internal colleagues, maintain positive relationships with an already established network of creative contributors, curators, scholars etc.
As a creative, resourceful, and flexible individual you have the ability and desire to think differently and to successfully multi-task. Your engaging presentation and creative writing skills should ensure that RIBA achieves the highest standard in communicating to diverse audiences and enhance artistic reputation. Most importantly, you have a sincere passion for engaging the wider public with architecture.
