Exhibition Curator for Criw Celf 2021


We are looking for an innovative and experienced curator to help us showcase the artwork produced on this year’s Criw Celf project.

Criw Celf is an Arts Council of Wales funded project, bringing together more able and talented students in the visual arts, with ages ranging from 9-18. This is part of a national initiative to nurture young artistic talent in Wales. Criw Celf seeks to develop pupils’ creative practice and knowledge of the Visual and Applied arts through a series of master classes.

These masterclasses are led by professional artists and designers, who offer a wider investigation into visual arts practice. These master classes have produced a range of creative outcomes- from ceramics to screen printing, to glass work and life drawing. The exhibition draws together these exciting pieces of work into a cohesive whole, that highlights the exceptional achievements of these 90 young artists.

The Curator will be expected to present these artworks in a manner which is selective, yet challenging and exciting, whilst managing an exhibition budget and if possible providing their own technicians (of which there is a separate technician fee available). The Curator will also be expected to work alongside, and mentor, a young curator who will assist and shadow in the creation of this exhibition.

Mission Gallery has a lauded reputation for these showcases, and has annually dedicated a place in their exhibition schedule to bring the work of these young artists to the forefront. As such we expect our Criw Celf shows to match the professionalism and excellence of the rest of our exhibition programme.

Curator fee £600

The exhibition runs from Saturday 11 - 25 Sept 2021 with the week leading up provided for install.
