A short while ago I had the opportunity to visit PS1. It was awe-and-then-some.
Prior to my visit I had submitted an application for their summer internship program because i had seen/heard good things about the institution. Little did I know that it would feel so familiar. The exhibitions I encountered were truly extraordinary in form and content. I also really enjoyed the art as education / exhibition as encounter feeling one gets upon entering the space. The interplay of arts institutions as educational spaces is uncompromisingly contemporary, and creates a quirky and engaging space for visitors.
I am more than thrilled to announce that I will be working as an Installation intern his summer. Having the opportunity to learn more about installation, exhibition design, art handling, and institution registration in such a dynamic and innovative (not to mention TOTALLY RAD) institution is going to blow my mind in the best of ways.
In addition to their current exhibitions P.S.1 offers a totally new museum experience come summer with their Young Architects Program exhibition/installation and a unique concert series, Warm-Up. You can check out more info on past series on their website and take a 3D media tour of last years events.
Perfect? Yes. I don’t think I could have asked for anything more Whitney appropriate than to work in a contemporary arts center that hosts totally boss dance parties. I start June 15th. I leave June 13th – the day after Bike Friday at the Henry. Its going to be a long next couple of weeks, of that I am certian.
