Our programme is mainly devoted to significant  emerging and mid-career contemporary artists, alongside occasional solo exhibitions of modernist and pre-20th century figures that have a particular resonance for artists today. We also produce and present ambitious group exhibitions, such as Still I Rise: Feminisms, Gender, Resistance; The House of Fame; The Place Is Here; Monuments Should Not Be Trusted; Glenn Ligon: Encounters and Collisions, which situate artistic practices within a wide field of ideas.

The Assistant Curator contributes to the realisation of Nottingham Contemporary’s exciting exhibitions programme. You will help to project manage exhibitions and other projects, ensuring effective co-ordination and scheduling, researching loans, organising transport, insurance and contracts,  and contributing to the interpretation, documentation and publicising of the programme. You will have at least two years relevant experience. Excellent written and verbal skills, experience of budget monitoring, an aptitude for teamwork, an attention to detail, an ability to meet deadlines under pressure, and an understanding of what it means to work with art and artists and a large, diverse public, are all essential.

This position is a fixed term contract of one year.
