Description

Gallery Intern at The Invisible Dog Art Center

The Invisible Dog opened in 2009 as a raw space in a vast converted factory building with a charmed history and an open-ended mission: to create, from the ground up, a new kind of interdisciplinary arts center. The Invisible Dog brings together artists of all career stages, offering them unique opportunities for collaboration and development. With exhibitions, large-scale installations, performances, and two floors of artist studios upstairs, The Invisible Dog is a multi-faceted arts institution with a large community and wide range of programs.

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 two days a week at the gallery, Thursday–Sunday, as well as attending and assisting with ID events. Each day starts with opening up the gallery; sweeping, checking the bathrooms, 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. General gallery maintenance is key; art handling experience is highly desired. 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.
