The Hepworth Wakefield has welcomed over 2.5 million visitors since opening in May 2011 and is now established as one of the most successful public art galleries in the UK, attracting critical acclaim and audiences from around the world.
We present an ambitious programme of major exhibitions of the best international modern and contemporary art, alongside innovative displays drawn from Wakefield’s growing art collection. Central to our work is our learning programme that engages schools, families, adults and local community groups through inspiring creative learning opportunities. In 2019, we opened The Hepworth Wakefield Garden, designed by Tom Stuart-Smith, to complement our David Chipperfield-designed gallery and provide an inspiring public garden, free for all to enjoy. We have recently been joined by neighbours Tileyard North, who have developed the 19th century mill complex opposite the gallery into a vibrant hub for the creative industries. We are now embarking upon two capital projects to complete our wider waterfront site, including returning our much-loved playground and creating a workshop and yard space for our Gardener and her team of volunteers.
We are seeking an experienced Collection & Exhibitions Registrar to support the curatorial team in collection care and the delivery of a world-class exhibitions programme at one of the UK’s most successful public art galleries. The post-holder will lead on the museum’s registrar work, managing a programme of care and conservation for the collection, and scheduling and managing the delivery of all exhibitions and collection displays.
