Getty Marrow Undergraduate Internship
Deadline for application submission extended
to May 18, 2020
Programming and Exhibitions Internship
Under the guidance and mentoring of the University Art Gallery Director and the Gallery Technician, the CSUDH University Art Gallery Programming and Exhibitions Intern will provide support for the gallery’s online programming in response to Covid-19 entitled From A Distance, providing content from the artists in the CSUDH community. The intern will also work on “PRAXIS: Lauren Halsey” an exhibition by Los Angeles-based artist Lauren Halsey originally scheduled from April 18–December 5, 2020 and will be rescheduled for as early a date as possible.
Lauren Halsey is currently in residence at CSU Dominguez Hills as part of the University’s PRAXIS arts engagement program working with students to create a project based on her long-term, large scale The Crenshaw District Hieroglyph Project. Using her relationship with CSUDH’s local community (Halsey grew up close to the campus and several of her family members attended CSUDH) and the University’s history of social justice, Halsey will work with members of the campus community to evolve the concepts for the Crenshaw Project using her architectonic work. In addition to the architectural installation, Halsey will activate the exhibition space with regular performative events, workshops, and dialogues — programming will provide tangible resources through free practical trainings for community members on entrepreneurship, dance, and health.
The Getty intern will assist the artist and gallery staff in producing these programs and events. This work will include marketing, coordinating events, and interfacing with the public. The intern will also work with the Gallery Director and Halsey to create web pages and social media galleries. The intern will be trained to provide gallery education for the exhibition, answer visitor questions, provide tours for groups, and work within the exhibition’s community context.
In addition to supporting “PRAXIS: Lauren Halsey,” the intern will work with the Gallery Director and the Gallery Technician to plan for several upcoming exhibitions and for programming featuring Los Angeles-based artists.
