VOLUNTEER EXHIBITION ASSISTANT - PRESENCE (A WINDOW INTO CHINESE CONTEMPORARY ART)

PRESENCE: A Window into Chinese Contemporary Art is an exhibition of the New Collection of Chinese Contemporary Art, part of the University of Salford Art Collection, consisting of artwork by 19 contemporary artists from China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.

This year, coinciding with the display of the historic Terracotta Warriors in Liverpool, we are proud to present an exhibition of cutting edge contemporary Chinese art that celebrates the city’s strong relationship with China.

Working with St. George’s Hall, Open Eye Gallery, and Liverpool City Council we are welcoming a fresh team of people to help enhance the visitor experience.

Volunteers will play a key role in the day to day running of the exhibition space, making it a welcoming and friendly environment. No previous experience or specialist knowledge is required, as full training will be provided. All we ask for is commitment, an interest in art, and, above all, a willingness to be the face of PRESENCE: A Window into Chinese Contemporary Art for the public.

Your duties will include greeting and directing visitors around the exhibition, helping visitors to engage with the exhibition by providing background information on the artworks, and invigilating the gallery spaces.

In return for your time you’ll gain work experience and develop your skills, as well as the chance to improve your career prospects through networking, and a valuable insight into an art gallery setting. You will also be invited to social events and the end of exhibition party.

Travel expenses will be reimbursed up to £7.50 per day. We ask for a commitment of 1 day per week, 9:45 am – 5:15 pm, with a lunch break.

If you want to be part of this exciting project, please fill out the form below and return it to olivia@openeye.org.uk

Applications will be reviewed and interviews conducted on a rolling basis.
