The Invisible Dog Art Center is looking for an intern for Fall 2019 (September to December)!
Do you want to intern at a cool gallery space in Brooklyn? Apply now!
Please email your resume and a short paragraph explaining why you are qualified for the position to Arly Maulana at email@example.com. An application that does not consist of both a resume and a short paragraph will not be considered.
On any given day, there are many things that an intern at the Invisible Dog may be responsible for. Interns are generally expected to commit to spending 2 to 4 days, 12 to 22 hours a week at the gallery (between Thursday to Sunday), as well as attending and assisting with gallery events. Each day starts with opening up the gallery, sweeping and opening up the Glass House, delivering mail to upstairs artists, and other general gallery maintenance. Interns are expected to multi-task: there is much work to be done while gallery sitting, such as researching incoming artists and doing general organizational work for upcoming installations and performances. Other days, interns will be expected to be more hands-on with tasks ranging from aiding artists with installations and de-installations, to setting up and breaking down events. If you want to get the first-hand experience and the knowledge in running a gallery, this position is for you!
The internship is unpaid, but you'll get $10/day stipend. We're open to doing college credits as well.
