The FLAG Art Foundation is looking for enthusiastic individuals interested in gaining experience in a non-profit contemporary art space located in the heart of Chelsea. Given the small size of the FLAG staff, interns are provided with a multi-faceted and hands-on experience of working on current and upcoming programming. Interns participate in FLAG’s curatorial and administrative processes and are encouraged to explore ideas relevant to their studies/professional interests. An intern’s tasks may include the following: curatorial assistance, exhibition organization, research, archiving, social media outreach, drafting press releases, blog posts and artist biographies, event planning and support, administrative, and other assigned projects.

The ideal candidate is an undergraduate, graduate, or recent graduate student, available two to three days a week (including some evenings for events) for a period of at least three months. This internship is unpaid.

Requirements:
• General knowledge of contemporary art
• Computer proficiency is a must, particularly experience with Microsoft Office; Experience with Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, and Final Cut Pro is a plus
• Excellent oral, written, and interpersonal communications skills
• Attention to detail and strong organizational skills
• Ability to multitask and manage time efficiently
• Personable, with a professional phone demeanor
• A sense of humor

Currently on view is the first U.S. survey of Bali-based artist Ashley Bickerton. Bickerton’s vibrant and often dystopic vision of contemporary culture has been at the center of his four-decade-long practice, which includes painting, photography, sculpture, and every possible combination therein. The survey demonstrates the extraordinary visual range of Bickerton’s oeuvre, which oscillates between playfulness and brutality, extreme beauty and the grotesque. Works from the artist’s signature series from the 1980’s to present, including Susie, Logos, Blue Man, and new Water Vector and Wall-Wall works, highlight his subversive and self-aware critique of identity, consumerism, and cultural artifice.

FLAG also host various events in conjunction with its exhibitions. Past events include an artist conversation with Jeff Koons and Betty Tompkins, a Scotch tasting with Lawrence Weiner, a drawing party with Will Cotton, an artist conversation with Sean Scully, and a performance by acclaimed cellist Inbal Segev.
