Curatorial Internship at The Kitchen
The Kitchen Seeks a Curatorial Intern to start immediately.
The Curatorial intern assists with researching and organizing upcoming exhibitions, performances, and events at The Kitchen, including the development of timelines, checklists, and printed matter. Interns will be introduced to issues relating to contemporary visual and performing arts, and will obtain administrative and curatorial skills by aiding in daily operations, implementing short-term and long-term projects, and providing general support. Curatorial interns also assist with The Kitchen archives by filing materials, scanning items, and helping create content for the Archive Website. Additionally, curatorial interns also work in the gallery as monitors. The right match for this position will be a highly self-motivated and intelligent individual with strong written, organizational, and inter-personal communication skills, as well as an ability to manage time and juggle responsibilities efficiently. The individual should be familiar with the key ideas and figures in contemporary art and have a strong interest in time-based work (film, video, sound, and performance). Computer proficiency is essential, including experience with Microsoft Office especially Word and Excel on a PC platform. Candidate would ideally be able to commit to about 16-24 hours per week.
Internships at The Kitchen are loosely structured to coordinate applicants' interests, backgrounds and schedules with the needs of our organization. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide financial assistance, housing, or stipends. We do offer interns contact with world class artists, invaluable work experience within a major international arts organization, and free access to all Kitchen performances during the internship period.
