Hauser & Wirth is one of the world’s leading commercial galleries for Modern and Contemporary art with locations across the UK, USA, Europe and Asia. Hauser & Wirth Somerset opened in July 2014 and has welcomed over 800,000 visitors, receiving wide and positive acclaim in the press. Its ethos sits at the very heart of Hauser & Wirth, as a place where art can successfully merge with many other subject matters of importance to us; architecture, craft, education, community, landscape, food and farming, and opens the doors for creative ideas and collaborations.
The position of Gallery Trainee is an exciting new role at Make Hauser & Wirth Somerset – a companion gallery to Hauser & Wirth Somerset. Make opened on Bruton high street in 2018, and is a gallery dedicated to contemporary craft practice and making, showcasing work from the best emerging and established artist-makers in the UK and internationally.
The exhibition programme includes talks, workshops, residencies and events. We are looking for an enthusiastic, pro-active, organized and personable individual who is in the early stages of their career in the craft or art world to join the hugely successful Make team. The gallery has become a destination for craft with its unique, narrative driven exhibition program and the candidate would be joining at a significant moment as we look to expand our reach and develop new initiatives in Somerset and beyond.
