Job: Touring Exhibition Co-ordinator / Seaside Photographed / Closes, 14 December 2018

Seaside: Photographed (25 May - 8 September 2019) is Turner Contemporary’s first photography exhibition, curated by Val Williams and Karen Shepherdson. This major exhibition will examine the relationship between photographers, photography and the British seaside from the 1850s to the present. As well as featuring the work of eminent photographers including Vanley Burke, Susan Hiller, Jane Bown, Anna Fox, Henri Cartier Bresson and Paul Nash, the curators have uncovered rich and sometimes unknown work from across photography’s history, from Raymond Lawson’s remarkable chronicle of family life in Whitstable to Hannah Blackmore’s series of decaying shops in Ramsgate and Henry Idden’s documentation of a traditional Blackpool hotel. Seaside: Photographed looks at the way that the British seaside has become a vivid background to the drama of everyday life, seen through the acute, critical and engaged visions of 70 photographers from the UK, USA and Europe.

The Touring Exhibitions Co-ordinator will co-ordinate touring and loans administration for Turner Contemporary’s ambitious exhibition Seaside: Photographed in 2019.
