Tate Modern seeks a Head of International Collection Exhibitions

Blavatnik Building, Tate Modern, London

Deadline to apply is 13 March, 2019 at 17:00

The National and International Partnerships team works with museums, galleries and visual arts organisations across the UK and globally to build networks and share programmes and expertise. Parallel to the touring programme of loan exhibitions from all four Tate galleries, a dedicated strand of internationally touring collection exhibitions has been established to enable Tate to work with a wide range of art institutions, share the collection with audiences in many parts of the world, and generate income to support Tate’s wider activity.

This exciting opportunity will allow you to lead on the strategic development and day-to-day management of the Tate Collection touring exhibition programme, ensuring that high quality exhibitions are developed and delivered to international venues. You will be planning and reviewing exhibition and delivery processes whilst collaborating with colleagues across Tate at all Tate sites. Focused on building our brand and reputation while generating maximum income, you will build on the Tate Collection International touring exhibition strategy, manage our programmes’ reputational and financial risk and develop business planning models. You will be preparing exhibition proposals, drafting and negotiating loan agreements with venues whilst representing Tate, both, in the UK and abroad. Drawing on your impressive knowledge of the exhibition market in the international museum and gallery world, you will research, identify and impress new potential partners.

You’ll come to us with extensive knowledge of the international touring exhibition market and proven ability to generate fee income. You will use your excellent project management skills and competence, while identifying and mitigating risk to organise international projects and complex partnerships in a museum or gallery environment. This means that you’ll bring excellent knowledge of museum standards for art handling, packing, transport, display and installation requirements as well as an extensive network of international museum, gallery and arts institution contacts, along with knowledge of UK government agencies such as The British Council and UKTI. To succeed in this role, you will need to have strong interpersonal skills with the ability to work with a range of staff across Tate at all levels. Your experience of business planning and strategy implementation will be matched by your excellent negotiation skills as well as experience of drafting, scrutinising and negotiating contracts.
