DescriptionSince opening in 1999, MASS MoCA has become one of the worlds premier centers for making and showing the best art of our time. With annual attendance of 120,000, it ranks among the most visited institutions in the United States dedicated to new art. More than 80 major new works of art and more than 50 performances have been created through fabrication and rehearsal residencies in North Adams, making MASS MoCA perhaps the most fertile site in the country for new art. The museum thrives on making and presenting work that is fresh, surprising, and challenging.
MASS MoCA seeks full-time interns for various departments. Spend any season in the culturally rich, naturally beautiful Berkshires, while gaining invaluable professional experience in the arts. Paid interns are given $125/week stipend and free housing within a block of the complex (cable, internet, and utilities included). Internship dates: January 16 - May 29, 2017.
Intern assists in the day-to-day operations of a busy curatorial department and helps with the preparations for upcoming programs, as well as the maintenance of current exhibitions. Responsibilities consist mainly of research, writing, and administrative duties, and may also include assistance in the procuring of exhibition materials, installation of art works as necessary, and any number of unexpected errands or jobs required to help maintain an ambitious exhibition program of contemporary art. Intern also works with the Education department, receiving training to lead tours of exhibitions, interact with museum visitors, and develop focused “spotlight” talks on topics of special interest. This is a crucial part of the internship experience. The successful candidate should be self-sufficient, and have an eye for detail, strong writing and research skills, and a positive attitude about performing many kinds of tasks on a demanding schedule. Must have driver’s license and be willing to do a fair amount of driving.
