Assistant Curator/Administrator
12 Months Fixed Term - .8FTE

An opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and motivated Assistant Curator/Administrator to join our small team.

Invercargill Public Art Gallery, formerly Anderson Park Art Gallery, is currently operating from a temporary location at 5 Don Street in the CBD. From this new home, we are running an exciting exhibition calendar, whilst preparing to pack and move our collection of fine and applied art from Anderson House. The successful candidate will play an important role in supporting management in both these areas.

As Assistant Curator/Administrator you will need to be adaptable and proficient in a multitude of gallery based tasks, including assisting with the curation and installation of exhibitions, as well as art handling/packing. You will also be primarily responsible for the day to day administrative tasks, whilst meeting and greeting visitors and liaising with artists and stakeholders.

A bachelors degree in Fine Art, Art History or Museum Studies is essential, as well as a sound knowledge of New Zealand art and confidence in communicating this with the public.

If you would like to work in this creative environment and have a passion for arts and culture then we look forward to hearing from you.
