less than half (lessthanhalf.org), a website covering female artists in New York City, which includes exhibition reviews and profiles of practicing artists, is looking for a part-time paid intern to do research on current listings, update the website, and help with other administrative tasks.
The website is still quite young, so enthusiastic, self-motivated individuals who are interested in not just helping out, but having a had in shaping the future of the platform, are encouraged to apply.
less than half does not believe that writing about female artists is an inherently political act. Rather, we believe in righting the balance: if 50% of artists who are working today are women, then 50% of the critical attention paid to artists should focus on women. What's more, we believe that writing about women both past and present will only make the art world a more complex and fascinating place. Our philosophy centers on the idea that a rising tide lifts all boats—we all benefit from the diversity of artists in our galleries and museums.
Please send resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 25.
