As a practicing curator (contemporary art) and/or artist you will have a knowledge and understanding of current practices and conceptual contexts within each field and the ways in which they interface and relate. You will possess a track-record of delivering teaching to practice based students at BA Level. An understanding of Post-graduate taught provision and their relationship to BA programmes is also desirable. You will be joining a dynamic, externally facing Department of Art & Performance that places high importance in collegiate and cross-cutting work.
