Here’s the breakdown care of Artnews.
It’s not easy finding a decent job in the arts. At the moment however, there’s a bit of movement, fuelled in part by the exodus of some excellent people to Queensland Art Gallery / Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane (Jason Smith, Kyla McFarlane, Geraldine Barlow, Aaron Seeto et al).
Here’s a round up of some spicy jobs currently on offer:
- Artistic Director, ACCA, Melbourne
- Director, West Space, Melbourne
- Director, 4A, Sydney
- Senior Curator Contemporary Art, NGA, Canberra
(Oh, and there are a couple of marketing/public programs positions going at the NGV right now if you’re that way inclined).
Most of these close soon, so get in there!
Arts administrator Betty Churcher has died aged 84. Churcher made history three times during her career: she was the first female head of a tertiary institution, the first female director of a state gallery and the first woman to be appointed director of the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra.
