Job: Curatorial and Archive Coordinator / closes 10 December 2021

Four Corners seeks a Curatorial and Archive Coordinator to join our team. This is an exciting opportunity to work on Four Corners' public exhibition and archive programmes. Four Corners is a centre for film and photographic arts, based in East London for over 40 years. Our Gallery and Archive programmes engage audiences with issues emerging from radical histories, and stories from the margins that might not otherwise be told. We recognise that access to the arts is not always equal, and we aim to change that by championing creative expression and new voices through skills, mentoring and production opportunities.

Four Corners is a registered charity. We are a team of twelve part-time staff, and we work closely with volunteers, freelancers and partners in visual arts, film and TV, archives, community and higher education to deliver our programmes.

Background to this post
This post is part-funded through Four Corners' Hidden Histories project, which is supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Four Corners Archive comprises the film and photographic heritage of Four Corners, Half Moon Photography Workshop and Camerawork magazine, 1972 to 1987. The collection and online archive offer a rich source of material on working lives, protest, feminism and the lived experience of communities. The project aims to develop Four Corners Archive as an active site for community-engaged practice, research and public programmes that explore radical and untold social histories.

We are seeking applicants with a background and expertise in archives, museums or galleries working within fields of photography, curation, visual arts or related sectors.

The post is offered on an 18-month contract from January 2022 to June 2023 in the first instance.
