Los Angeles

Under the supervision of 18SAC’s Director of Exhibition and Residency Programs Frida Cano, the 2022 Getty Marrow Curatorial Programs Intern will provide curatorial and program support for several exhibitions at our airport galleries: an exhibition featuring CA based artist Ranu Mukherjee at the Propeller Gallery; and a group exhibition entitled “Imaginary Dwellings” co-curated by Marvella Muro and Natalie Godinez.

The intern will have hands-on experience in the production of an art exhibition, including studio visits, interviews, selection process, loan agreements, installation, and more. The intern will be supported with regular check-­in sessions, regular weekly staff and project meetings, and two reflective, informal progress report meetings as well as a final, formal exit interview. Communications will be conducted via Zoom, email, and in-person as needed for work.

The intern will work closely with internationally recognized artists, seasoned arts professionals, and gain insight into the workings of a mid-sized non­-profit arts organization, including exhibitions and residency programs, social and public practice, performance art, community-­based outreach, and event production. Work hours are M-F 9am­-5pm, including a one-­hour lunch break. This is a full-time (40hrs/wk) position for a ten-week work period from June through August, 2021. Schedule flexibility to accommodate occasional evening or weekend events is expected.
