Volunteer with HOUSE and assist with Yinka Shonibare MBE’s new commission
HOUSE 2014 needs your help both behind the scenes and welcoming our visitors. Join our team and you will have the opportunity to take part in this dynamic visual arts event. We need volunteer front of house assistants to invigilate the exhibition spaces, talk with the visitors about the artists’ work, provide information about HOUSE 2014 as well as ensuring the security of all exhibited works.
In addition, we are looking for volunteers to assist our commissioned artists in the creation and installation of their works in late April. Apply early and you could have the opportunity to help create Shonibare MBE’s The British Library, a new co-commission with Brighton Festival. We need help to cover thousands of books in the artist’s signature Dutch wax Batik fabric. If you want to be involved in creating this unique piece of work contact us now. Presented in the former Reference Library in Brighton Museum and Art Gallery, Shonibare MBE’s piece explores the impact of immigration on all aspects of British culture and considers notions of territory and place, cultural identity, displacement and refuge.
Selected Artists Leah Gordon, Phillip Hall-Patch, Ester Svensson & Rosanna Martin and Tobias Revell make a point of connection with Shonibare MBE’s new work, in a compelling series of four new curated commissions across the city at Regency Town House, The Brighton Waste House and Lighthouse.
For more information about the HOUSE 2014 programme see our Artists pages.
This is a great opportunity to join the HOUSE team. As a volunteer you will gain first hand experience of putting on events and exhibitions, as well as making new friends and engaging with a dynamic group of arts professionals, curators and artists.
HOUSE 2014 will run from 3rd – 25th May 2014
Book covering for Shonibare MBE’s piece will take place in the Old Reference Library from 14th to the 28th April.
