This is a fantastic opportunity to join the ICA Curatorial team and to lead the development and delivery of the organisation’s Talks & Live programme, in collaboration with the Director, Chief Curator and other members of the curatorial team. The ICA has historically centred aspects of discursive and live programming. Today, the support and presentation of practices across art, theory, philosophy, activism, performance, music and literature is more vital to the organisation than ever. The ICA’s Talks & Live programme is a site for the facilitation and gestation of challenging new ideas and practices, for the commissioning and realisation of new works, and the convening around leading theory and critical thought from social, cultural and political perspectives.
The post holder will strategise and realise the future Talks & Live programme with these principles in mind, in discussion with the Director, Chief Curator and other members of the Curatorial team. The post holder will be responsible for building long term relationships with artists, thinkers and performers, and to stay aware of developments in cultural and social theory and practice. They will also be responsible for building on existing relationships with partner organisations and key collaborators, as well as broadening towards international partnerships.
Closing date for applications is midnight, Friday 28th June 2019 with interviews to follow soon after.
