About the Role
The Biennale of Sydney is seeking a highly skilled candidate to lead the exhibition management team responsible for the planning and delivery of each Biennale exhibition. The position offers the rare opportunity to take a senior role in a highly ambitious organisation that plays an indispensable role in Australia’s engagement with the world, and a meaningful role in the life of the nation.
The Biennale of Sydney is Australia’s leading contemporary visual arts event, one of the longest running and most highly respected international biennales in the world.
Reporting to the Director & CEO, the Head of Exhibition Management will make a significant contribution as part of the senior management team of the Biennale of Sydney. The position is integral to the Biennale’s activities and is responsible for all aspects of planning, coordination, design, production, operation and evaluation of Biennale of Sydney exhibitions and the commissioning of new, site-specific works of art.
The Head of Exhibition Management leads a small, highly dedicated team and works closely with participating Australian and international artists, exhibition partners, venues and lenders from around the globe.
Excellent organisational and cross-cultural communication skills are essential as well as flexibility and an ability to prioritise complex and competing responsibilities. A strong commitment to collaboration and an ability to build effective relationships across a wide range of partners and stakeholders are key to the success of this position.
An entrepreneurial and business-minded individual who relishes a challenge and is conscientious, efficient, energetic, determined, and passionate about contemporary art would excel in this role.
