Gallery Assistant Internship
Compound Yellow has been operating as an experimental cultural space since 2016 and has been a registered non-profit since 2018. We have 3 distinct spaces: a studio/workshop space, an exhibition space, and an experimental small space with built in modular shelving for appropriate types of work (booklets, zines, posters and other possibilities). We also have a fairly large storage space. All of these spaces require some maintenance and an intern would gain experience in assisting to maintain and prepare these spaces for exhibitions, workshops and other events.
There are also opportunities to learn about how we program and promote our exhibitions and events. Internships could include (depending on skills): Writing/editing (for PR and exhibition descriptions) and writing for and posting to social media (Instagram, Facebook). Graphic design experience and website development or maintenance would be valuable - currently CY uses Squarespace. Sometimes designing posters and other print material depending on the exhibition or event. People skills: ie, greeting the public, helping prepare for openings and attending openings, attending some CY meetings, etc.
