During its history, seven directors have shared their experience and perspective on contemporary art, contributing to the continuous development of this project.
Now Artspace is seeking for a new Director for a three year period starting on April 2011.
With required experience as a curator or initiator of art projects, the successful applicant will own an in-depth knowledge of contemporary practice, strong networks and sector support, good editorial skills, and preferably will hold a post-graduate qualification in a relevant field.
The Director oversees a small team of staff and volunteers, and establishes parterships with cultural and funding agencies, actively encouraging and contributing to the development of the gallery through patronage contacts and public initiatives.
A strategic plan is set by the Board of Trustees, to whom the Director reports.
Applications close 10 December 2010.
