Curator of Unfinished Conversations, Museum and Gallery, University of Glasgow, Glasgow, UK. Deadline: 13 July 2022.
You will deliver The Hunterian’s three-year programme, ‘Power in this Place: Unfinished Conversations’ funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation. Building on the transformational ‘Curating Discomfort’ project, the Curator of Unfinished Conversations will work across collections and organisation to embed anti-racist, participatory approaches in The Hunterian and the wider university communities with which the museum and gallery work.
The post will seek to restore social capital appropriated through two centuries of collecting to communities, locally and internationally and will ensure that The Hunterian’s own processes undergo fundamental and permanent re-alignment around race and equality issues. Impacts will be delivered beyond The Hunterian, facilitating new critical strategic dialogues at senior levels across the University of Glasgow and in Scotland’s cultural sector and beyond.
