Fixed term: March 2023 - September 2024. The deadline for application is 10am, Friday 3 March 2023.

Metroland Cultures is looking for a committed, approachable and collaborative Curator to join the team and lead on the delivery of the Brent Biennial 2024. The curator will develop the conceptual and programmatic vision for the third edition of biennial, the main outcome of which is expected to be an exhibition across multiple sites showing local, national and international artists side-by-side. Central to the curator’s proposal should be a desire to speak to and from the borough, its communities and heritage, regardless of whether this is to pursue an existent or a new line of curatorial inquiry within the curator’s practice. Partnerships will be key to ensuring that the biennial is rooted in its community while also expanding the breadth and scale of the project through additional reach and resources. It is expected that the curator will work with already-existent partners set out by the Director, as well as bring their own relationships and networks to create new ones.
