Curatorial Assistant, House of Illustration

House of Illustration is a registered charity and the UK’s only public gallery dedicated solely to illustration and graphic art. Founded by Sir Quentin Blake it opened in July 2014 in King’s Cross, London. Its exhibition programme explores both historic and contemporary illustration and the work of defining and emerging illustrators, amplified by a pioneering learning programme and a vibrant programme of talks and events. House of Illustration is the only UK gallery commissioning illustration for public display and runs the UK’s only residency for illustrators and graphic artists.

Our Exhibitions team delivers nine original exhibitions per year at House of Illustration as well as a dynamic touring programme in collaboration with museums and galleries in the UK and internationally. Our exhibitions feature loaned works from internationally significant public and private collections, requiring exceptional standards in collections care and documentation. The Exhibitions team also commissions new work from established illustrators and supports emerging illustrators as part of our residency programme.

We are looking for a skilled and highly motivated Curatorial Assistant with excellent communication skills to support our small Exhibitions team with the administration and delivery of temporary exhibitions, and particularly to facilitate loans of artwork and licensing of supporting material for display.
