Curator & Exhibition Producer

New Art Exchange (NAE) is a leading contemporary arts space in the heart of inner city Nottingham that celebrates the region’s cultural richness and diversity. We present an ever-changing programme of exhibitions and a vibrant public programme of events along with strategic project work focussed on audience development, engagement and talent development. We are now seeking an experienced curator and exhibition specialist to play a key role in the R&D and delivery of NAE’s exhibition, touring and commissioning programme.

Working to the Director of Programmes, the Curator and Exhibition Producer will support all aspects of the artistic programme, leading on administrative and coordination processes and working across departments to aid connectivity. The Curator and Exhibition Producer will also have opportunity to lead a selection of their own curatorial projects/commissions.

With an agenda rooted firmly in our local communities, NAE creates accessible programmes through the work of world renowned British and international artists. These have included new commissions, tours and live art performances by artists such as Hurvin Anderson, Zarina Bhimji, Hetain Patel, Larissa Sansour, Sonia Boyce, Sethembile Msezane, John Akomfrah, Akram Zaatari and Hardeep Pandhal. NAE collaborates with a wide range of national and international organisations, and recent touring partners have included Imperial War Museum, Modern Art Oxford and Impressions Gallery.

NAE recently announced a significant uplift to our core Arts Council funding helping to establish the organisation as the leading venue in the UK for culturally diverse arts. The post of Curator & Exhibition Producer will therefore join the organisation at an exciting time, helping to expand our reach locally and nationally.
