This year, Institute of International Visual Arts (Iniva) is celebrating 25 years of challenging conventional notions of diversity and difference. To commemorate and create a legacy for this special anniversary, Iniva has established a partnership initiative that re-imagines the future of our public collections at major art galleries and museums throughout the UK. Rather than simply initiating a series of short-term new commissions to celebrate our anniversary, Iniva is working in partnership with three museum and gallery partners with generous support from the Art Fund and Arts Council England. In Year One, the museum partner is Manchester Art Gallery.
This Traineeship, offered jointly by Iniva and Manchester Art Gallery, will be co-located between both organisations with the majority of the contract being spent in Manchester with travel and accommodation arranged in London as needed. The successful applicant will be supported to develop a range of skills expected from the curatorial workforce today including subject expertise, working with living artists, collections care and exhibition making. Learning about audience engagement and widening access will be a fundamental part of developing and enhancing these skills.
