Expression of Interest

Curator for Kimberley Art Prize & Kimberley Photographic Award 2015

The Shire of Derby/West Kimberley is seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified individuals to curate the Kimberley Art Prize (KAP) and Kimberley Photographic Award (KPA) exhibitions in 2015.

Historically the KAP has been facilitated by the Shire of Derby/West Kimberley since 1970 and began originally as a non acquisitive prize until 1978, when the introduction of acquiring the overall winner was introduced. The Shire has hence added to its art collection over the last 36 years via the acquisition of art works produced by some of the most talented artists in the region. The prestige and out-standing reputation of the KAP in particular built throughout this time are enviable asset that cant not be easily replicated, put provide a foundation that?? promises even more for the future.

In 2012 the two photographic categories were removed from the KAP to enable the inauguration of the KPA in September. This competition was facilitated to acknowledge photography as an increasingly popular art form and was well received in the photographic and local arts community. Today, both exhibitions are well placed to benefit from the long term investment of the Shire and the growing profile of both competitions now attract roughly 150 works and 100 artists.

In 2014 the KAP and KPA exhibitions were held back to back for the first time and were co-branded as the Kimberley Creative Visual Arts Month. Duties and responsibilities of the Curator include competition and exhibition planning, assistance form entry conditions and exhibition?catalogue, sponsorship leveraging, full gallery design; set up and pack down, and master of the ceremony services at wards presentation evenings. If you have the relevant skills and expertise and believe you have what it takes to transform Derby Civic Centre into a beautiful gallery space please provide your resume by 4pm on Friday 14th November 2014.
