An internship at the Halsey Institute is an invaluable opportunity for students (and recent graduates) at any level to gain experience in a professional gallery setting. Our interns become involved with all aspects of the Halsey Institute, starting with the understanding of our mission, past programming, future programming, membership, and daily responsibilities of running a nonprofit organization. Much of our interns’ time is spent on exhibition research, writing, installation, and promotion. Although internships are tailored to fit the interests and skills of each intern, participants are deemed generally useful, meaning they have the opportunity to assist with anything related to Halsey Institute programming.
Many former interns have since landed jobs working for galleries and museums nationwide, including the High Museum of Art, the International Center of Photography in New York, Pace Gallery New York, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, among many others.
The Summer 2020 internship will run May 11 to August 21. Interested applicants for Summer 2020 are encouraged to send a current résumé and cover letter to the attention of Bryan Granger at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, March 27, 2020.
Please note: Due to the response to COVID-19, the dates and scope of this internship are subject to change. We are still accepting applications until the above deadline, and we will post any updates here.
