Scotiabank Curatorial Assistant
Gallery 44 is a dynamic space and a leading artist-run centre led by a dedicated group of artists, curators and educators, currently seeking Curatorial Assistants in partnership with OCAD U Career Launchers. Reporting jointly to the Curator of Exhibitions and Public Programs and the Curator of Education and Community Outreach, the Scotiabank Curatorial Assistants will contribute to the development and realization of gallery exhibitions, workshops, and adjacent programming.
The Scotiabank Curatorial Assistants will work directly with artists, guest curators, artist-educators, designers, and Gallery 44 staff. The role is positioned to offer emerging curators an opportunity to gain hands-on, working knowledge of exhibitions, publications, public and educational programs, in a fast-paced environment, and amongst a collegial staff-team of five early-career arts professionals.

Alongside her art practice, she passionately works towards a career as a curator - most recently curating two shows for the 2019 Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.
