Artists Archive Project (Wojnaorwicz) Internship

Summer 2016 Internship 

The Artist Archive Project – David Wojnarowicz

The Artist Archive Project at NYU seeks a graduate student intern for the summer of 2016. The intern will perform research on David Wojnarowicz at Fales Library & Special Collections in Bobst Library and elsewhere to develop information regarding curating and conserving his work.

They are looking for a motivated graduate student who is interested in questions surrounding the disposition of contemporary art in museum collections. Experience with archival research and skills in searching bibliographic databases are preferred. The intern will work independently and hold weekly meetings with the supervisors. They will also work closely with a Polonsky Foundation–NYU Digital Humanities intern who will help build a database and web portal, along with Clinical Professor Deena Engel in the Computer Science Department.
