Centre A was founded in 1999 and is Canada’s only public gallery devoted to contemporary Asian and Asian diasporic art. Our mission is to build an inclusive community for contemporary Asian art and foster a greater understanding of evolving cultural experiences and identities. We are committed to creating mentorship opportunities for emerging artists and cultural workers, while facilitating collaborations across local, national, and international contexts. Our Reading Room houses an extensive collection of books and research materials, including the Finlayson Collection of Rare Asian Art Books.
Reporting to the Executive Director, and working with the Centre A team, the Curator will develop and oversee the artistic programming of the organization. This is an ideal opportunity for an early career curator to build a network and craft their voice. The role will include research, grant writing, program development, as well as day-to-day gallery operations. This is an exciting opportunity to engage in meaningful collaboration with diverse communities and promote progressive cultural conversations across a wide range of Asian artistic practices.
The successful candidate will be creative, resourceful, and passionate about the artistic and community engagement opportunities offered by Centre A’s location in the Sun Wah Centre, a former retail mall.
