Job: Publication Researcher - Black Women in Photography / deadline 12 July 2021

This opportunity is for a curatorial / academic researcher to project-manage the first dedicated publication to explore the legacy of Black women in photography active in Britain between the 1980s – 90s. This publication is based on an illustrated gallery lecture the artist Joy Gregory presented in 2018 at Autograph.

The role will involve working closely with Gregory to edit the book, including: re-working / transcribing her 2018 lecture into a written text and producing an extended in-conversation with Gregory; assisting and shaping the research direction; collating ephemera, textual and visual materials; writing interpretation and other short texts, where appropriate, about the selected artists’ practices/biographies; liaising with the various collaborators and institutions; managing the project schedule and deadlines with the teams at Autograph and MACK. The role can be adapted to the work and life commitments of the successful candidate, but we anticipate that it will either involve an estimated 2 days a week commitment over a 6-month period, or a block of approximately 40-50 days within an agreed time frame. The post is co-supported by Autograph and MACK.

The successful applicant will receive a fee of £7000 all inclusive.
