This is an exciting opportunity. The SFMOMA is seeking someone to work alongside Dominic Wilsdon (formerly of the Tate Modern) in public programs. Dominic is wonderful and actively working to create an exciting new direction for the museum in terms of public programming.
The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art seeks an outstanding candidate for the post of Associate Curator, Public Programs. The post carries the primary responsibility for curating a range of live programs that present major intellectual and cultural practice, international in scope, to a broad public in the Bay Area. This will involve expanding the talks and discussions program to cover issues of contemporary concern across art and visual culture, politics and society; developing SFMOMA’s new program of contemporary and historical film; and conceiving and developing a new strand of performance, including music and live art.
For the Garage festival 09 Free Soil have conducted a site specific research project investigating the environment of the Baltic Sea.
We created an alternative archive of political and historical events that have occurred in the Baltic Sea region, especially Stralsund and linked these with the sea’s responses. The impact of Industrialisation, population growth and political changes has resulted in climatic and environmental changes recorded in the sea. Nature retaliates by creating new forms, one of the most significant being the spread and growth of toxic Blue Green Algae or “phytoplankton”
