The Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) is Australia’s national museum of film, TV, video games, digital culture and art. Unique in the museum landscape in Australia, ACMI celebrates the moving image and its profound impact over the last 120 years as it transports, challenges and entertains people of all ages and backgrounds, right across the globe.
Situated at the very heart of Melbourne in Federation Square, ACMI explores the rapid evolution and astonishing creativity of the moving image with a vibrant, multilayered program of exhibitions, screenings, installations and commissions, festivals, and public, industry & education programs. ACMI is the most successful museum of its kind in the world. It plays a vital part in establishing Melbourne as a global cultural destination. In 2017/18, ACMI attracted 1.55 million visitors to its Federation Square site, and 556,000 visitors to its national and international exhibition touring program.
To support ACMI’s creative vision across our exhibition program and the redevelopment project we have a role for an Assistant Curator to help deliver on our curatorial framework and identify and research the core stories only ACMI can tell. This is a great opportunity to build your museum and gallery career in an organisation focused on audience advocacy, digital culture and community engagement.
You will join ACMI, bringing with you a proven track record of working on cultural exhibitions, focused on high quality visitor experiences with excellent curatorial rigour that achieve audience outcomes.
