Gallery Internship (ARHT6923)


The gallery internship is a compulsory, project-based internship of 20 days minimum in an art gallery, museum or other appropriate art organisation in Sydney, elsewhere in Australia or overseas. Internships invite critical reflection on contemporary art curatorial practice, foster the acquisition of essential knowledge and skills and greatly enhance students' employment prospects in the art museum and gallery sector. Projects are supervised by a professional from the host institution and might include curatorial and collection research, exhibition development and installation, assisting in public programs, object conservation or museum registration.
