Artpace San Antonio is accepting applications for one paid summer internship to graduate students studying in fields related to art education, museum studies, or art history.
Artpace nurtures the freedom to dream. We support the creative process and engage audiences with the most innovative art and artists from around the world. Our residencies, exhibitions, and education programs nurture the creative expression of emerging and established artists, while actively engaging youth and adult audiences.
Through our International Artist-in-Residence program (IAIR), we invite nine artists annually to participate in a two-month residency. Each residency is comprised of three artists—one international, one national, and one from Texas. For the Summer 2015 residency, Artpace welcomes International Artists-in-Residence: Wafaa Bilal (New York, New York), Fatma Bucak (London, England), and Gabriel Martinez (Houston, Texas). In addition to IAIR, Artpace organizes three exhibitions per year in the Hudson (Show)Room and Window Works gallery.
The graduate intern will assist the Education Department in composing artist interviews for in-gallery interpretation on iPads; organizing evening programs and events; researching for upcoming residencies; conducting educational tours; coordinating Camp Artpace activities for children; developing online educational resources; and partaking in day-to-day office duties. Interns are encouraged to attend San Antonio art events and to become familiar with the local contemporary art community.
The successful candidate shall work independently and collaboratively. They will apply their creativity, critical thinking skills, and enthusiasm to a wide range of projects under the mentorship of Artpace professionals. Artpace seeks applicants who devote significant energy to tasks at hand and bring to the table new ideas and creative solutions. A strong knowledge of contemporary art and exceptional verbal and written skills are required. Proficiency in reading and speaking Spanish, iMovie, and Adobe Creative Suite is desirable.
