Are you interested in publishing and collaborative practice? SBC is seeking an intern!
SBC’s current curatorial program, LOOSELY ASSEMBLED, brings to the forefront the various aspects of artist publishing that require working together. Rather than focusing on the products or materials produced as the end node of a publishing practice, LOOSELY ASSEMBLED explores and reflects the radical histories and potentials of publishing as a collective action — as a tool that defines and reflects communities to themselves, extends communities outward, or creates social relations. In several “cycles” planned throughout 2019, invited participants will continuously add to and build a space that experiments with different acts of publishing — in and outside of art — bringing forth the potentials of publishing to the communities it creates. In its various iterations, LOOSELY ASSEMBLED is a project that aims to build a critical dialogue around publishing; as a tool, as a conversation, and as a practice.
LOOSELY ASSEMBLED / ASSEMBLAGES SOUPLES is an exceptional opportunity for an intern to participate in critical research, supporting a wide range of events and workshops, while meeting with curators, publishers, artists with a wide variety of practices. The intern will work closely with our curator-in-residence, Danielle St-Amour (Art Metropole, Banff Center, AGO, C Magazine, and more), whose practice as a curator, critic and artist focuses on artist’s publishing.
The intern will assist the SBC team in researching exhibition material and helping to populate the exhibition’s INDEX. The INDEX is an online platform built to collate and annotate all exhibition material throughout the Loosely Assembled programs and cycles, including supporting documents; artworks; source material and citations; and event documentation. The intern might be tasked with finding articles referenced in the INDEX in both English and French, and linking them in the INDEX; collecting and uploading images to the INDEX, researching image credits, helping to create and keep it updated as new materials enter the exhibition.Interested applicants are encouraged to speak to their own interest in archiving and publishing in their application letter.
To work on this project, the candidate must have competency with CMS and web design; knowledge of InDesign and Illustrator, as well as an interest in publishing, print media or media history.
The internship opportunities we provide are only possible through salary subsidy programs or for university credit. If this opportunity interests you, please contact your institution to determine your eligibility for government or academic internship programs.
