K6 Gallery seeks a Curator/Researcher


Deadline Friday 22 September 2017

Fee £1,000
Hours 10 days

K6 Gallery is seeking an artist/researcher/historian/writer/curator to undertake a central role in creating content for an upcoming exhibition.

The exhibition, scheduled to run in early 2018 will document a series of works by the late Des Francis. After conversations with Des’s family we are planning to put on this exhibition to celebrate and highlight this colourful eccentric local character.

A South African of Indian heritage, Des Francis was a prominent campaigner against apartheid which led to his imprisonment as a political prisoner before he moved to Zambia to work as a teacher. Eventually settling in Southampton where he worked as a much-loved teacher for many years before his death in 2013. An ardent activist, Des had a strong creative streak, he took thousands of photographs and made annotated collages throughout his lifetime.

The ideal candidate will be based within or near Southampton. For more details and how to apply please visit: k6gallery.com/news/curator-researcher-wanted
