Contemporary art curating news and views from Michelle Kasprzak and team

Curatorial Intern: Toronto

Posted by Michelle Kasprzak • Thursday, November 2. 2006 • Category: Jobs & Opportunities
Curator Alissa Firth-Eagland seeks an energetic artist/designer/writer/curator/troublemaker/troubleshooter interested in developing promotional and aesthetic strategies for the cultural activities of Sleepwalker Projects (Toronto, Canada).

An experimental window space on Queen Street in the West end of Toronto, Canada, Sleepwalker Projects presents newly commissioned works to the evening public. Connecting international artists with Toronto writers, partners, and late-night wanderers from dusk to dawn, Sleepwalker brings strange and unique exchanges with the edges of contemporary culture to those who are out and about in the wee hours: the time when, we believe, things begin to happen.

By collecting materials from local and international participants, developing publicity, and designing promotional materials, the Curatorial Intern will have a key role in programming. This 3-month internship is an unpaid position requiring 10 hours per week, beginning late-November 2006. The candidate can expect to gain skills in the presentation and packaging of experimental creative projects. In particular, he or she will develop methodologies specific to promotional styles, programming strategies and research processes applicable to an independent curatorial practice.

Candidates should send a letter of interest and a CV by email or post before Friday November 10th, 2006 at 5:00 pm:
