During the past academic year our students have obtained outstanding internships with major museums and other non-profit organizations. For the first time, one of our graduate students interned at the Neue Galerie for the Administrative Manager and was involved in a range of activities that included translation from German to English and registration and curatorial assistance on an Otto Dix exhibition. Another graduate student interned for the Senior Curatorial Assistant at the Whitney Museum of American Art. The Brooklyn Museum provided opportunities for two graduate students—one interned for the Associate Curator of Photography and another for the Curator of American Art. We also had two students interning at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in the Curatorial and the Registrar Departments.
An undergraduate interned at Printed Matter, Inc., a non-profit organization with the mission to support the appreciation for and distribution of publications by artists. Located in Chelsea, Printed Matter provided a venue for the student to feel involved in the contemporary art milieu while participating in projects as diverse as performance art, book releases, and exhibitions in addition to working in the bookstore.
