NO CALLS PLEASE, thank you.
Art21 is a non-profit organization that illuminates the creative process of today’s visual
artists through the production of documentary films, interpretive media, and live
programs that stimulate critical reflection as well as conversation. Art21 offers an
independent, “behind-the-scenes” point of view on contemporary art and artists,
producing historically relevant, primary source materials of the highest quality,
exemplified by the Peabody Award-winning documentary series Art in the Twenty-First
Century and the Peabody Award-winning feature, William Kentridge: Anything Is
Possible. Based in New York City but with a global reach on television and online,
Art21’s additional projects include: workshops for teachers and art educators; public
screenings and lectures; a blog and social media initiatives. Art21 recently premiered
the sixth season of Art in the Twenty-First Century in Spring 2012.
Though Art21 is a high-profile project, we have a small staff and a friendly working
environment. Interns are an important part of our office community, and actively
contribute to our various projects. Interns at Art21 are given exposure to all aspects of
the organization through regular contact with Art21 staff members and other interns.
Art21 internships provide a unique opportunity to learn about contemporary art,
documentary video production, educational and public programs, and other related
initiatives. In some cases, Art21 can arrange academic credit in addition to offering a
small stipend.
