M+, Hong Kong Island, is seeking to appoint a conservator in photography (Ref:18099) and a conservator, preventative (Ref: 18110). The deadline for receipt of applications is 19 August 2018.
M+ is a museum dedicated to collecting, exhibiting, and interpreting visual art, design and architecture, moving image, and Hong Kong visual culture of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Within Hong Kong's West Kowloon Cultural District we are building one of the largest museums of modern and contemporary visual culture in the world, with a bold ambition to establish ourselves as one of the world's leading cultural institutions. Our aim is to create a new kind of museum that reflects our unique time and place, a museum built upon Hong Kong's historic balance of the local and the international to define a distinctive and innovative museum for Asia's twenty-first century.
The M+ Pavilion, which opened in September 2016, serves as the primary site for M+ exhibitions in the run-up to the completion of the M+ building. After M+ opens it will become a new space for artists, designers and organisations to stage independent small-scale exhibitions and events in the Art Park.
As part of the development of the team we are aiming to create a substantial Conservation team that will deal with the preventative and remedial conservation of the growing M+ Collection. The team will encompass various disciplines amongst which painting, objects, paper, photography and time-based media.
Reporting to the Senior Conservator, you will be an integral part of a growing conservation team to set up guidelines for the adequate development of preservation and conservation activities within M+ for one of the leading collection on contemporary visual culture in the world.
