Exhibition Research Assistant

No Man’s Land: Women of Land Art

 

In the Fall of 2023, the Nasher Sculpture Center will debut the exhibition No Man’s Land: Women of Land Art—a historical reinterpretation of Land art that will shed new light on the vast number of Land works by women artists, whose careers ran parallel to their better-known male counterparts yet have received scant recognition or representation in museum presentations.  No Man’s Land will feature the work of up to twelve women artists active in the Land art movement from the mid-1960s through 1990 and will include works both within and outside the galleries and garden of the Nasher. The exhibition will be accompanied by a scholarly catalogue with a central essay by Nasher Associate Curator and curator of the exhibition, Dr. Leigh Arnold, with additional essays by scholars in the field. As the first major museum presentation and publication devoted to women working in Land art, No Man’s Land will shape future scholarship of Land art to be more inclusive and expand on traditional notions of one of the most significant and impactful movements in art history.

We are looking for a part-time research assistant to help move the project forward from the research and development phase through the opening of the exhibition in September 2023.

Responsibilities may include:

  • Research archives of artists and/or artist estates to source materials related to the exhibition, i.e., documentation of artworks, photographs of artworks, proposals, drawings, video, published and unpublished writings
  • Develop and author a chronology of events germane to the subject matter of the exhibition
  • With the exhibition curator, develop a catalogue of publicly-sited Land works by women artists in the US
  • Review and edit oral history interviews under the direction of the exhibition curator
  • Author object labels for works on the exhibition checklist
  • Seek permission from institutional and private collectors for image rights for primary objects and contextual objects for publication, online resources, and exhibition digital interactives
  • Additional responsibilities and research and writing opportunities as agreed upon in support of self-identified goals

Qualifications

Current graduate student pursuing an advanced degree in Art History. Creative with strong critical thinking, communication, and research skills. Detail-oriented, thorough, and self-directed. Graduate student at the PhD level with an interest in Land art and experience with archival research is preferred.

Time Commitment and Compensation
