Tufts University Art Galleries Internship Opportunity

For Tufts University Students: Graduate Assistant-Academic Programs

Tufts University Art Galleries is seeking a graduate student interested in museum pedagogy, audience development, and public programs to work closely with the Gallery Educator & Academic Programs Coordinator for the 2018-2019 academic year.

The Graduate Assistant will conduct research on future exhibitions, organize and create resource materials for faculty and students, design and implement campus-wide public programs in conjunction with exhibitions, and provide informal learning opportunities in the Gallery. The Gallery Educator will train and mentor the Graduate Assistant to facilitate discussion-based tours in current exhibitions using a variety of museum pedagogies (i.e., VTS, Artful Thinking). This fall, the Gallery will feature Expressions Unbound: American Outsider Art from the Andrew and Linda Safran Collection, which brings together 38 artworks by some of the foremost self-taught artists of the 20th century and States of Freedom: The Figure in Flux, a pan-historical group exhibition of contemporary and historical work in which the body appears fragmented, flattened, or collaged.

The schedule for this paid position is flexible, but the expectation is a commitment of 5-10 hours per week. This position can be used to fulfill the Museum Studies internship requirement. Applicants should send a letter of interest and CV/Resume to Liz Canter at Elizabeth.canter@tufts.edu.
