Thank you for your interest in working with Royal Society of Sculptors.
The Society is looking for a Research Curator to lead an archive based project called Pioneering Women at the Heart of the Royal Society of Sculptors and funded by the Paul Mellon Centre. The project will explore and celebrate the invaluable contribution of women to the Society’s activities, and the sculptural practices of some of its most notable female members.
Research will be conducted into the history of the society and 25 of its female members - 10 of whom will form the core focus of the project – using the Society’s own archives, those of other archives, and published materials. Research outputs will include an online exhibition featuring imagery, archival documents and substantial biographical entries for the 10 core sculptors, and a series of talks and panel discussions by authors, academics and curators. The Research Curator will have experience of leading similar projects, a good knowledge of 20th century British sculpture, and enthusiasm for disseminating research and engaging with academics and the public.
Our work is supported by a fantastic team of volunteers; they enhance our scope and bring new ideas and perspectives. Find out more about our current volunteering opportunities.
We collaborate with partners in a number of ways, including sponsorship of awards and residencies, exhibition and event sponsorship, co-curating shows and hosting Third Thursday events – and we’re always open to new ideas.
