Curator – Open Eye Gallery

CURATOR, Open Eye Gallery


Open Eye Gallery is looking for a Curator who will develop a relevant, diverse, powerful programme.

Open Eye Gallery’s curator will embrace co-authorship and work effectively with our arts, academic, community and other partners to create, share and champion photography.

They will lead our programme, including LOOK Photo Biennial 2021, an international programme of cultural exchange. They will form relationships with emerging and established artists to shape the landscape of photography, and be at the cutting edge of research and discussion. They will also spend up to one day a week at UCEN, Manchester, contributing to a joint BA programme in photography.

This varied role provides opportunities to explore and experiment with curation and co-curation models. It also provides the chance to shape the next generation of practitioners, and the role of photography within people’s lives for the years to come.
