Poole Museum - 'Augustus John: Drawn from Life' exhibition Steward
The role is to steward a major exhibition of the work of one of the towering figures of twentieth century British Art at Poole Museum in 2018. ‘Augustus John: Drawn from Life’ will open on 26 May and run until 30 September. This will be the first major exhibition focusing on the career of Augustus John (1878-1961) since ‘Gwen John and Augustus John’ at Tate Britain in 2005. In his day Augustus John was considered one of the leading artists at work in Britain.
In order to secure the safe-keeping of these valuable artworks it is important that there is someone on hand to monitor the galleries and to assist the public. Other duties are likely to include:
- Monitoring drawing materials available to the public and keeping them tidy;
- Carrying out observation surveys to help the museum evaluate the exhibition’s organisation;
- Assisting with visitor feedback surveys both paper based and on an iPad
- Supporting young visitors to complete a family trail
You may also need to hand out folding chairs to the public and also keep these tidy and safe.
