by Loren Orsillo - Dictatorship of Gravity (and other micro politics) Exhibition curated by Jack McBride

Curator in Residence

The Curator in Residence is part of Carclew’s Residency Program that provides artists with the chance to reside in a space where they can develop their artform, and along with the Curator, gain industry support and access opportunities to expand their professional networks. We also offer two Artist in Residence studios.

The Curator in Residence position is suitable for emerging curators and arts professionals who are seeking further experience in the curation and management of visual arts exhibitions.

The exhibitions aim to profile the work of South Australia’s young and emerging visual artists, and applicants for the Curator position should therefore have a good knowledge of the local contemporary visual arts arena. The curator is responsible for the artwork selection, coordination, installation and smooth delivery of four to six exhibitions over a one-year period.

Carclew's 2019 Curator in Residence is Jack McBride. Carclew’s 2019 Artists in Residence are Loren Orsillo and Felicity Townsend.
