Job Description & Person Specification:

Designer Required – South Asia Gallery 

The Manchester Museum (at the University of Manchester) are seeking to appoint a designer to work on our new permanent South Asia Gallery, due to open in early 2022. We are interested in hearing from both companies and consortiums of individuals and open to working with a design team who may not come from a museum or exhibition background. 

This project is about creating an exceptional new space, it will include a central performance space at the heart of the gallery and be the first permanent gallery in the country specifically dedicated to exploring the stories, experiences, cultures and contributions of South Asian diaspora communities in the UK. 

The gallery will welcome visitors with beautiful displays and a dynamic, contemporary take on South Asian and British Asian culture: at 372m2, the new space will form the largest permanent gallery in the Museum, it will be co-curated and designed with communities and in partnership with the British Museum. 

The South Asia Gallery will bring world-class archaeological and ethnographic material, sculpture, textiles, paintings, ceramics, from the British Museum to Manchester, to be displayed alongside the very best of Manchester Museum’s own South Asian collections, including natural science collections. Further information and tender returns using the link below. 

The total fit out value will be £900k.

Closing date 31st March 2020
