Opportunities with V22 – Curatorial Assistant Internship

V22 is offering a paid internship to assist during V22 Summer Club 2018 and V22 Young London 2018. This will be 3 days per week from July – August with the option to continue with us on other projects. The internship will be paid at the rate of the London Living Wage.

V22 is an art organisation, with a shared ownership structure, which specialises in the collection of contemporary art, the production of exhibitions, events and educational initiatives, the provision of artists’ studios, workspace and artisans’ workshops and the running of community libraries.

The V22 Summer Club presents events, exhibitions, performances, screenings and happenings in collaboration with invited programming partners and artists, as well as new partners from local areas in which the Summer Club occurs

Young London 2018 provides a platform for emerging artists to show their work alongside a wide group of their contemporaries in a large-scale exhibition. Previous Young London artists have gone on to produce exciting new commissions and presentations, have been offered representation by leading contemporary galleries, and many have become part of the V22 Collection.
