International Curators Forum (ICF) is accepting applications for an emerging or early career UK-based Black or Brown researcher/curator with an interest in working on an exciting, new project addressing the legacy and contemporary relevance of Ten.8 Magazine. Their research into the Ten.8 archives will inform their development of:

  • A public event, which they will curate and produce with the ICF programmes team, at The Photographers’ Gallery in London to correspond with an archival exhibition on the legacy of Ten.8 in January 2025.
  • A major exhibition at The New Art Gallery Walsall activating the Ten.8 archive and bringing it into dialogue with artworks and other materials set to take place between April and September 2026. There is scope for the selected curator to work closely with ICF and The New Art Gallery Walsall to fundraise in order to commission new artworks for the exhibition.
  • Digital programming or outputs activating the Ten.8 archive.
  • A contribution to a new publication on the legacy of Ten.8, bringing together key existing texts and new commissions.

The fellow will have ongoing engagement with and will receive ongoing development support from ICF throughout the fellowship. They will have an opportunity to work closely with the ICF team every week as desired, gaining insight into our wider programme and access to our network. We are welcoming applications from researchers/curators across the UK who can work remotely during the development of the project outputs but can travel to attend events, installation, development and site meetings when required. This travel will be covered by the project.
