We are seeking an experienced and well-connected visual arts curator to work on our new project to create a vast gallery without walls across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.


Do you want to change the art world? Do you believe in reaching places, people and ideas where art doesn’t usually go?

Artichoke is renowned for its commitment to large-scale events in public space produced without barriers to access.  Now we turn our attention to the art world. The People’s Gallery, in association with the Out Of Home industry, will produce two inspirational and thought-provoking exhibitions each year, displayed on paper and digital billboards in the public realm across the four nations.

The first season is planned for July-August 2022 with the second in January-February 2023. Each season a lead artist will interpret a theme and work with and mentor a cohort of up to 10 emerging artists as part of each exhibition. The themes selected will reflect contemporary concerns and are intended to provoke debate and reflection.

Salary: Fixed fee of £20,000 to cover initial two seasons of work

Contract type: Freelance fixed fee

Based: Flexible. Our offices are in London, E1. Travel around the UK and Ireland will be required.

At Artichoke, we are dedicated to doing our bit to redress historic imbalances in the workforce. We want to recognise the positive value of diversity, create a culture of belonging, promote equality and challenge unfair discrimination. As a predominantly white organisation, we are actively working to address under-representation within the company and may use positive action in the recruitment process to select a candidate from a group that is currently under-represented in our team. We aim at all times to recruit the person who best meets our criteria and welcome applications from people of all backgrounds.
