Two art curators are being sought to create and deliver new public art programmes in King’s Cross.
The first art programme, RELAY, curated by Michael Pinsky and Stéphanie Delcroix, focussed on site-specific installations for the neighbourhood, encouraging visitors to view and use the developing spaces in a fresh way. The new curators, who would start their programme in September, will have the opportunity to develop frameworks for two separate programmes; one focussing on art in the public realm, the other on art for the new buildings completing at King’s Cross.
The curators will work with a range of partners, including on-site tenants and residents, the developer, and the King’s Cross Arts Advisory Panel, which currently has representatives from The Arts Council, British Council and the Tate. This is a fantastic opportunity to follow the highly successful RELAY arts programme, which delivered the IFO by Jacques Rival, Black Maria by Richard Wentworth and the final piece Across the Buildings by Felice Varini.
The selected individuals will need a strong creative vision, a good knowledge of established and emerging artists as well as a commitment to and interest in King’s Cross. The new programmes will have to bolster the area’s already strong reputation for arts and culture.
