Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE)
Los Angeles, CA
SUMMER CURATORIAL INTERN
The Curatorial Intern will participate in the production of several LACE exhibitions scheduled for Summer 2016. They will work closely with artists, curators, and staff throughout the summer season, assisting in production and serving as key liaison between the artists and LACE’s staff, as well as with any additional artists/ vendors involved in the projects.
The Curatorial Intern will manage the multiple projects’ promotion and outreach, including website and social media postings, and personal outreach to press. By being involved in the projects from development to execution, this person will learn the conventions and protocols of producing major programs, and will learn how to cultivate relationships with artists, curators and critics working in contemporary art today. They will work with the LACE staff and diverse group of interns, and thus will gain experience as a coordinator on major projects.
This internship is for a student who is interested in learning about the curatorial process and who wants to develop exhibition and event production skills for critically engaged, exploratory and community-responsive artists. LACE’s summer season coincides with the 10-week internship cycle, which ensures that the intern will experience the various phases of a LACE programming cycle.
