Exhibitions and Displays Intern (Paid), Tate Liverpool

Deadline: Friday 27 November 2015 at midnight

Salary:8.25 per hour
Working hours:up to 36 hours per week


Our Exhibitions and Displays department at Tate Liverpool is an exciting place to be. We create a series of special exhibitions and collection displays, to showcase the best in contemporary and modern international art. Many of our exhibitions and displays also tour other venues, nationally and internationally.

An opportunity has arisen for an Exhibitions and Displays Intern to support our forthcoming programme, and gain hands-on experience at the heart of our curatorial processes.

You’ll work to support We have your Art Gallery, Tate Liverpool’s forthcoming collaborative exhibition with Tate Collective. As well as carrying out loan administration, you’ll also work on the installation and realisation, providing a rare chance to experience behind-the-scenes of an exhibition programme. This will in turn give you a number of formal and informal learning opportunities that will assist you with your future career. Additionally, you will get to attend Programme Group, where the Learning and Exhibition teams determine the future programme of the gallery.

What’s more you’ll bring your ideas to important discussions about future exhibitions and collection displays at Tate Liverpool Programme Group meetings.

Everything you take away from your internship will count as fantastic experience for your future career in the arts – from understanding loan procedures and scheduling installations, to curatorial concerns relating to space and practicalities, and even organising print materials.

Of course, we need to know that you’re really interested in contemporary and modern international art. You’ll also show us that you’ve got good communication and research skills. You will be proactive, willing to learn and can work collaboratively as part of a team.
Tate aims to attract and retain talented people from all backgrounds, and these opportunities are for people to learn and develop new skills. We particularly encourage applications from black, ethnic minority, and disabled applicants as these groups are currently underrepresented in the cultural sector
