The Organization: Royal Ontario Museum

The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) is Canada’s celebrated international museum and houses extensive collections of art, culture, and nature featuring more than 13 million items. It is the largest Museum in Canada, with forty galleries showcased in its original heritage buildings and its 2007 Michael Lee-Chin Crystal extension designed by Studio Daniel Libeskind. Opened in 1914, the museum is Canada’s largest field-research institution, with research activities that span the globe.

Attracting more than 1.4 million visitors per year, the ROM has an annual operating budget of $65 million and is a world leader in communicating its research and collections to visitors. The ROM is an indispensable resource for building community by nurturing discovery and inspiring wonder.

For more information on the Royal Ontario Museum please visit www.rom.on.ca.

The Position: Curator of Indigenous Art and Cultures

The ROM seeks a dynamic, energetic, innovative individual with a track record of success in exhibitions, public engagement, and curation. The successful candidate will play a critical role in the development and implementation of a strategy to build, interpret and present the collection of Canadian Indigenous Art and Cultures to visitors and audiences broadly.

The ROM’s collection of Indigenous Art and Cultures is significant within Canada, featuring more than forty thousand cultural items and works of art from diverse lands and cultures. The collection includes items from many Indigenous communities that span the last two centuries up to works by contemporary Indigenous artists. The ROM has important collections of Indigenous ceremonial and cultural heritage as well as important works of contemporary art. The ROM Fashion & Textiles collections and archaeological collections also house important Indigenous materials.

The Curator will join the Museum at a critical time, as the ROM charts a new course to engage visitors and communities more deeply in its collections, research, and dialogue on contemporary issues. The position offers an opportunity to expand the ROM’s world-class collection and exhibition program into contemporary art and cultures, while maintaining its historic strengths. The ROM is seeking a Curator to offer fresh perspectives on the influence of Indigenous art and cultures in today’s world. The successful candidate will help shape the institution’s commitment to Indigenous Art and Cultures, create innovative ways of sharing collections and information, help build a program of community engagement, and promote an inclusive relationship in partnership with Indigenous communities.

To contribute to the goal to offer a balanced account of history in Canada, and present Indigenous Art and Cultures from Indigenous perspectives, the new Curator will help create new and culturally meaningful exhibitions in the First People’s gallery and temporary exhibitions. They will collaborate with the ROM’s Learning Department in their efforts to infuse Indigenous knowledge and perspectives into the museum’s educational and outreach programming. They will engage with Indigenous communities and ROM staff to contribute to the Ontario curriculum in First Nations, Métis, and Inuit Studies, and address the Calls to Action specific to Education as recommended by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.

The successful candidate will enjoy working in partnership and engaging with donors, collectors, scholars, external communities, and other partners, and will welcome interactions with many audiences, including families and children. They will believe strongly in meaningful engagement with Indigenous communities and lead by example to further a culture of inclusion and reconciliation at the ROM, and mutually support and work with the ROM’s Indigenous Advisory Circle. They will conduct original research in their area of specialty and make the results available through exhibitions, public programs, and publications. The Curator’s leadership will ensure that the Indigenous Art and Cultures collection, as well as other collections at the ROM, are interpreted from multiple voices, that stories are inclusive and not told from a single museum perspective.

The successful candidate will be a specialist in their field but interested in broad issues and questions related to Indigenous Art and Cultures that have relevance in Canada and the contemporary world.

TPP seeks proposals from working artists, experienced with community engagement, for creative and meaningful projects inspired by contemporary art for youth in priority neighbourhoods.

We are currently seeking to fill four Artist-in-Residence positions for the Fall 2019 Power Youth term, comprising 14 weeks from mid-September to late December 2019.

TPP staff will conduct the first round of interviews. Youth participants will conduct the second round of interviews – including a short hands-on activity – so they may select their Artist-in-Residence.

Reporting to the Power Youth Coordinator, Artists-in-Residence will:
• Design a curriculum for the term, approximately 14-weeks based on their artistic practice. Practicing artists in any medium are encouraged to apply, including: Drawing, Painting, Mixed Media, Photography, Sculpture, Video/New Media, Spoken Word, Dance, Music, Theatre, and more.
• Facilitate one weekly session at an off-site location, providing group leadership, individualized mentorship, brainstorming and ideation of projects, instruction in uses of materials and techniques. (One week is a visit to TPP with the youth, in lieu of a regular program session.)
• Assist youth in planning and executing a project to be exhibited and/or performed at the annual Power Youth Spring Exhibition / Showcase. (AIRs are expected to attend the exhibition reception.)
• Work primarily independently to deliver programs with on-site support from the Power Youth Teaching Assistant and/or Power Youth Coordinator.
• Maintain weekly communication with the Power Youth Coordinator to discuss program curriculum and material/equipment needs.
• Optional: Attend a curatorial tour of TPP’s current exhibitions at the beginning of the season.

NOTE: This AIR opportunity does not provide personal studio space.
