Position at Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art

From: Alix Collingwood <alix_collingwood<-at->
Date: Monday, May 14, 2012
Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art (mima)

Fixed term 1 year, part time contract
Reports to: Senior Curator

Grade and Salary Scale: Grade G
UKP19621 - UKP20858

With external funding from the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation, we are
very pleased to be able to create two new positions for mima.

mima, Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art is an educational and
cultural institution. mima presents a changing programme of
exhibitions across its galleries covering the beginnings of 20th
century art to the present day, bringing the best to Middlesbrough
and presenting our regions best to the rest of the world. mima
exhibits and collects both fine art and craft, and is unique in the
UK in that it presents the two side by side. This includes a range
of highly established artists, emerging artists, and regional,
national and international artists.

In addition to responsibility for the wider conservation management
of mima's collections, one of the key responsibilities of this role
is the launch and testing of a conservation services business model.
The post holder of this position would be expected to use the one
year of part time employment to develop and test out a business case
for whether the position can move towards being self-financing in
future years, ensuring continued conservation support at mima,
through providing an outward facing conservation framing service to
other venues, organisations and artists. In addition to paid work
the post holder would also be expected to develop relationships with
other bodies of conservation expertise across the wider region
developing quid pro quo arrangements.

mima is currently funded by Middlesbrough Council and Arts Council
and forms  part of Middlesbrough Museums and Galleries service
alongside the Dorman Museum and the Captain Cook Birthplace Museum.
The Conservator post will be positioned within the curatorial team,
working alongside the Senior Curator and Curator, with
responsibility to the Senior Curator.
