May 7, 2015

221A is seeking applications for employment in the role of Curator, Projects and Residencies, working with the Director to research, plan and coordinate curatorial initiatives. Working through periods of intensity as projects develop, both indoors and outdoors, the candidate must be highly adept at understanding and implementing collaborative organizational practices as part of a wider artistic and theoretical pursuit.

The opening of this position comes at the same time as Bopha Chhay, Projects Coordinator, steps down from 221A. Arriving in Canada from New Zealand, via Afterall in London, it is with great warmth and respect that we have come to know and work with her over the past 3 years. While we will sorely miss her at 221A, we wish her continued success in her upcoming projects.
