Creative Careers | Curatorial Jobs Round-Up

Is it your passion to build bridges between artists and viewers?

Curatorial roles come in all shapes and sizes. A curator may work with sound art, performances, paintings, or historical artifacts, to name a few examples. Regardless of the focus of a position or curatorial opportunity, it’s a field that requires drive and dedication. In the words of Jenny Gibbs, Program Director for the MA in Art Business program at Sotheby’s Institute of Art: “A curator is the one working tirelessly behind the scenes, very often covered in paint, all in the service of the artist and the work…the most important job of the curator is to be an effective facilitator—to help the artist tell the story and connect the viewer with the art.”
