The Louise Bourgeois Internship, MoMA

The intern participates in the essential activities of the Department of Drawings and Prints, which may include assisting the staff in the following areas: collection management, acquisitions, loans, exhibition research and catalogue production, and administration. The collection of drawings and prints, numbering some 75,000 objects, is housed within the department offices, so the intern has the opportunity to work directly with art objects, after requisite conservation training. In addition, the intern will work in the department’s Study Center, which services approximately 1,000 visitors per year (including classes) and is integral to its curatorial mission. In general, the intern will be involved with various aspects of the department programs, under the guidance of the curatorial and administrative staff. This internship is named in honor of artist Louise Bourgeois, whose extensive work in printmaking comprises an archive within the Museum’s collection.


The ideal candidate has an art history background (MA candidates preferred), and a demonstrated interest through pertinent work, internship, or volunteer opportunities. Any previous experience working in a museum or gallery setting, and specifically with works on paper, is preferred. Fluency in German or Russian is a plus, but is not required.
