Volunteer Callout for Ian Breakwell: Keep Things As They Are
The De La Warr Pavilion is seeking enthusiastic volunteers to act as exhibition assistants during the Ian Breakwell: Keep Things As They Are exhibition ,October 2012 to January 2013.
Your main role would be to greet visitors in the gallery and answer any questions they have about the exhibition. This role would suit somebody who supports the De La Warr Pavilion, enjoys talking to people and has at least 2 hours a week to spare during the day for the duration of the exhibition.You do not need an extensive knowledge of art and there will be a training session on the work of Ian Breakwell so you can communicate his ideas with knowledge and enthusiasm. The new exhibition Keep Things As They Are is a retrospective of this British artist covering four decades 1960 – 2003 and it would be useful to have assistants who have knowledge of that period. Ian Breakwell used to visit the Pavilion regularly and his film The Other Side – showing elderly Bexhill couples dancing in slow motion across the DLWP balcony – was a huge hit with local audiences in 2002. This work will be included as part of Keep Things As They Are and shown in Gallery 2 .
The role is unpaid. We welcome applications from the widest possible range of people young or old, whether recently retired, working part time, studying, or those looking for new interests. Please write, in the first instance, to Sally Ann Lycett on firstname.lastname@example.org, telling us a little about yourself and why you would like to be considered as an exhibition assistant, reaching us no later than Wednesday 29 September.
