Position Available: Editorial Assistant/Listings Manager
September 2011: This post is filled, but we are always interested in hearing from people who want to work with us or have ideas. Do please be in touch.
August 2011: artcritical is looking to appoint an intern as editorial assistant/listings manager. We publish the most comprehensive calendar on the web of New York City visual arts events, with shows opening and closing, lectures and panels, and editorial picks. The editorial assistant will liaise with galleries to ensure accurate listings, work on the design and layout of the calendar page, and work with the editor on related picture research and layout issues. This is a fantastic opportunity for gaining knowledge and visibility in the New York gallery and museum scene, and for working in a fast expanding and exciting art magazine. There are also additional journalistic and editing opportunities for interested candidates. As an additional perk, publisher/editor David Cohen arranges lunches from time to time for the intern and other editorial assistants to meet interesting personages in the art world.
You must be a meticulous, conscientious, details-oriented person with good organizational skills. Knowledge of MS Excel and Wordpress are both pluses, but training is provided. Genuine curiosity about the contemporary art scene is naturally essential to the discharge of responsibilities.
artcritical is a leading online magazine of art and ideas with a significant world wide readership and a focus on exhibitions and events in New York. It was launched in 2003, and underwent a design overhaul in 2010 to accommodate new media and advertising possibilities.
The internship is partially compensated ($50 per work day) and is generally for one 8-hour day per week, starting immediately and normally limited to one year.
