Canadianart: How to Find Art Internship Opportunity?

Interns complement their studies with real world experience, while mentees improve their knowledge by working one-on-one with a more established artist. Dawn Whitworth, manager of research and industry at Emily Carr University of Art + Design, offers the following info and advice on taking advantage of these opportunities.

Louisiana Channel

The esteemed Danish museum, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, punches hugely above its weight on its broadcast channel, going far beyond art and consistently featuring leading writers, musicians and architects. Louisiana does deep dives particularly well: a documentary about Ulay and Marina Abramović is exemplary, and a series of films in which artists including David Salle and Tal R discuss the influence of the painter Marsden Hartley reflects the incisiveness artists can bring to understanding the work of their forebears.

Metropolitan Museum of Art Youtube Channel

The Met’s broadcast output matches its collections for its variety. It produces excellent films marking its exhibitions and projects, such as this year's short documentary focusing on the Cree artist Kent Monkman’s paintings for the Great Hall—Monkman appears in the film as Miss Chief Eagle Testickle, his gender-fluid alter ego, absorbing the historic collections he revisits in his work. The Met also makes great use of its archives in its From the Vaults series. What could be better for YouTube than Metropolitan Cats, 1983—A History of Cats at The Met, in which curators nearly 40 years ago explore the feline figures in Met paintings alongside footage of marvellous moggies? That the Met’s film is relatively little shared on social media until now is a mystery.

Museo Nacional del Prado Youtube Channel

A New York Times article this year drew attention to the Prado’s surprise-hit Instagram films, in which curators, visitor assistants, conservators and other museum staff are shot informally in the galleries as they explore major works on the museum’s walls. Miguel Falomir Faus, the Prado’s director, spoke movingly about the museum continuing to operate this year even while its doors were closed, before delivering a hugely entertaining look at Tintoretto’s epic The Washing of the Feet (1548-49). Its YouTube channel is full of delights and also has subtitles, unlike the Instagram feed: a whole section is dedicated to conservation, for instance, with Elisa Mora—an Instagram star—restoring Goya’s Winter (1786) among the highlights. There’s also a series of films about works in the collection for children.

Museum of Modern Art Youtube Channel

A fine media collaboration involving galleries in recent months has been MoMA’s series, The Way I See It, with BBC Radio 3. On MoMA’s YouTube channel are the engrossing short films that complement the BBC podcasts, involving leading figures across the arts exploring works in MoMA’s collection with insight and no little affection. MoMA’s short artist documentaries are similarly compelling: a rare interview with Pope.L about his crawling performances manages within a few minutes to capture the revolutionary spirit of the works and the personal background to the artist’s profound engagement with New York’s urban spaces. A conservation film from this year focuses on Girault de Prangey’s daguerreotypes, capturing the fragility and beauty of that medium.

TateShots Youtube Channel

The Tate’s documentary series is defined by its originality. Yes, there are conventional artist profiles: for instance, a beautiful film with the artist Billie Zangewa in Johannesburg. But it is also consistently surprising: in connection with Tate Britain’s Aubrey Beardsley exhibition earlier this year, the Tate brought together the curator Stephen Calloway with drag performer Holly James Johnston to explore dandyism through both fin-de-siècle and 21st-century lenses. A wonderful film with dance group Corali, who perform choreography created by artists with a learning disability in Tate Britain’s galleries, dramatically animates the Tate collection. Then there are explorations of artists who escape the attention of mainstream channels, such as the late Rose Finn-Kelcey.
