Booklyn is an artist-run non-profit organization in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. We are currently reviewing applications for spring and summer internships.
The Artist Book Inventory Intern will work with Booklyn’s artwork inventory, documenting new works of art and keeping our online database of artists’ books up-to-date.
Interns may also get involved with some of the following activities, depending on interest:
· Cataloging archive materials
· Helping to coordinate and publicize traveling art exhibitions
· Publicizing Booklyn news and events for our website & social media
· Assisting with grant applications and other fundraising projects
We encourage potential interns to contact us about special projects related to their skills and interests. Past examples include: creating a finding aid for a zine collection, creating animated videos of artist books, etc.
To apply, please email a cover letter and resume to Maya Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org. Intern applications will be evaluated on a rolling basis.
Start date, spring: 2/1/14 (flexible)
Start date, summer: 5/15/14 (flexible)
Booklyn’s mission is to promote artists’ books as art and research material and to assist artists and organizations in documenting, exhibiting, and distributing their artworks and archives. All internships at Booklyn are currently unpaid. Booklyn strives to ensure that our internships are truly educational experiences and not “busy work.”
