Curator, The Hayward
33,000 GBP per annum

Southbank Centre is the UK's largest arts centre, occupying a 21-acre
site that sits in the midst of London's most vibrant cultural quarter
on the South Bank of the Thames. The site has an extraordinary
creative and architectural history stretching back to the 1951
Festival of Britain.

As the hub of visual arts activity at Southbank Centre, The Hayward
plays a vital role in the UK and internationally by presenting a wide
range of ground-breaking art exhibitions, project exhibitions and
outdoor installations. Boasting one of the largest and most versatile
exhibition spaces in the UK, The Hayward aims to place artists at the
heart of its every activity and to offer visitors adventurous
encounters that defy expectations.

As Curator, you will work with the Director and Chief Curator of The
Hayward to deliver a series of exhibitions and installations in The
Hayward Project Space, outdoor spaces around Southbank Centre's site
and in the gallery. You will be responsible for curating and writing
about each project as well as supervising design and installation and
managing project budgets.

With demonstrable knowledge of and interest in international modern
and contemporary art, you will have significant experience of working
in an art gallery or museum at all stages of curating an exhibition
from conceptualising, planning, and administering exhibitions to their
installation. Outstanding interpersonal skills and the ability to
manage relationships at all levels are also essential.

You will be available to start in November 2008.
