JOB OVERVIEW

Autograph is looking for an Exhibitions Manager to manage delivery of our contemporary exhibition, loans and touring activity, which have a strong focus on photographic practice.

We work with a wide range of institutions in the UK and internationally to lend work and tour exhibitions originating in London. We appeal to very diverse visitors who are attracted to the issues addressed by artists we show and appreciate the quality of our offer.

Based at Rivington Place, in Shoreditch, London which houses our two public galleries, small scale screening facilities, a learning studio and our specialist photographic collection, you will:

  • Provide logistical support necessary to deliver Autograph’s artistic programme to a high standard, facilitating the curatorial vision agreed with artists for each project.
  • Ensure that the highest standards of museum practice are delivered in design, build, procurement, risk management, health & safety (H&S), insurance and care of art works, working closely with curatorial and external stakeholders.
  • Coordinate the installation and demounting of temporary exhibitions and collection displays on site with technical contractors and other suppliers.
  • Manage, UK and international touring packages, loans and occasional artists’ projects off site.
  • Contribute logistical insights to our programme development strategy which takes a team based approach to developing our public offer.
  • Contribute to the team’s environmental sustainability work, feeding into and helping to shape the wider organisation’s environmental strategy.

We are looking for someone who identifies strongly with our values and mission, has well developed knowledge and experience of contemporary exhibition production, administering loans from the collection, commission delivery and ideally a particular interest in photography. You will need to be a strong communicator and an excellent project manager who is comfortable working with a wide range of service providers, partners, artists and interest groups, to deliver the responsibilities set out in this role.
