    Digital Asset and Database Administrator
    Vancouver Art Gallery

    Location: Vancouver, BC
    Compensation: $25.71 per hour

    The Vancouver Art Gallery, one of the largest and innovative art museums in Canada, is undergoing a multi-phase organizational transformation after celebrating 90 years of operation. With a permanent collection of more than 12,000 works of art, the Gallery is implementing a campaign to build a new purpose-built gallery facility in downtown Vancouver planned to open in 2027. This is a moment of growth, exploration and change, as the Gallery re-articulates its relationship to communities and audiences and envisions the role of an art museum in the 21st century.

    The new building designed by Swiss Architects Herzog and de Meuron will provide an optimal platform to reimagine the Gallery's relationship with the world. The new Gallery building will be the most ecologically sustainable art museum in Canada. The creation of a world-class purpose-built art facility will enable the Gallery to foster deeper and wider community relations and expand audiences, celebrate Indigenous culture, and acknowledge the diverse heritage and histories of place and people in Canada and the ancestral and unceded territories of the Traditional Coast Salish Lands including the Musqueam (xʷməθkʷəy̓əm), Squamish (Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw) and Tsleil-Waututh (səlilwətaɬ) Nations.

    Complementing and building upon a rich institutional history of exhibiting photography and moving image, design, craft, material and popular culture-in an expanded field of visual culture-the Gallery further seeks the development of an online and virtual space-"a second building"-that blurs the line between the "real" and "virtual" worlds. Through innovative art programming, the Gallery will be a leader in interpreting Canada's past, present and future.
