Hyundai Tate Research Centre: Transnational promotes new ways of interpreting and presenting art through the framework of transnational; a way of understanding and curating art that encourages the idea that art and its histories are interconnected beyond its country of origin. Embedded within Tate’s curatorial vision, the Centre’s work is involved in exhibitions, acquisition strategies, collection displays, public programme and digital outputs.

Art & Ecology
The Adjunct Curator, Art & Ecology will provide experience and engagement with communities, organisations and/or institutions working at the intersection of art and ecology. This will be demonstrated by a sustained engagement, evidenced in their writings, curatorial projects, and/or equivalent experience. A transnational outlook is important, since a specific focus should be considered in a broader historic and intellectual remit, as well as in the context of transnational activism and critical debates.
First Nations and Indigenous Art
The Adjunct Curator, First Nations and Indigenous Art will provide expertise from a relevant location and will promote debates and discussions on the subject within and beyond Tate. This post will be held by a curator or researcher with an in-depth knowledge of modern and contemporary international art, with a particular specialism in First Nations and Indigenous Art, as evidenced in their writings and/or curatorial projects.
The Adjunct Curators will be experienced curators or researchers of modern and contemporary international art, with a specialist focus in either Art & Ecology or First Nations and Indigenous Art in transnational contexts. The Adjunct Curators will contribute to all aspects of the Hyundai Tate Research Centre: Transnational’s programme including research, exhibitions and acquisitions. The Adjunct Curators will work closely and in a collaborative way with colleagues in the Hyundai Tate Research Centre: Transnational, and within the Curatorial department at Tate Modern.
To fulfil this brief, you will need:
- Expert knowledge as well as practical and scholarly involvement in subjects relating to either First Nations and Indigenous modern and contemporary art, or in subjects relating to ecology in a contemporary and artistic context.
