Freelance Curator for Opening Programme
Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery Trust is seeking to appoint a talented freelance curator to establish the Trust’s opening exhibition programme at Pitzhanger Gallery when it reopens to the public in late 2018 after a major HLF and ACE-supported upgrade of both the Gallery and the Manor.
