Opportunity type:Internship, Part-time
Working hours:21.6 hours (3 days) per week
Salary:£9.00 per hour
Location:Liverpool - Tate Liverpool
Closing date:11 August 2019 at midnight
Our Exhibitions and Displays department at Tate Liverpool is an exciting place to be. We create a series of special exhibitions and collection displays, to showcase the best in contemporary and modern international art. Many of our exhibitions and displays also tour other venues, nationally and internationally.
An opportunity has arisen for an Exhibitions and Displays Intern to support our forthcoming programme, and gain hands-on experience at the heart of our curatorial processes.
You’ll work to support our curators during the installation of our Winter 2019 exhibitions, Theaster Gate: Amalgam and Vivian Suter, working behind-the-scenes to help realise the exhibitions. In addition, you will contribute to the organisation of our summer 2020 exhibitions, including working on loan administration and research. This will in turn give you a number of formal and informal learning opportunities that will assist you with your future career. Additionally, you will get to attend Programme Group meetings where the Learning and Exhibition teams determine the future programme of the gallery.
Everything you take away from your internship will count as fantastic experience for your future career in the arts – from understanding loan procedures and scheduling installations, to curatorial concerns relating to space and practicalities.
Of course, we need to know that you’re really interested in modern and contemporary international art. You’ll also show us that you’ve got good communication and research skills. You will be proactive, willing to learn and able to work collaboratively as part of a team.
This is a 3 month internship starting in September 2019.
Tate aims to attract and retain talented people from all backgrounds, and these opportunities are for people to learn and develop new skills. We particularly encourage applications from black, ethnic minority, and disabled applicants as these groups are currently underrepresented in the cultural sector
