Jobs: Soho, New York City

Global Contemporary and Fine Art Website Seeks Editorial and Art Business Development Interns

Art Observed, a contemporary and fine arts website based in Soho, New York is seeking interns for the 2014-2015 school year. Our site has some of the highest traffic of any art related website in the world with six figures of impressions monthly. We are seeking writing, reporting and correspondent interns for support in areas such on site and off-site reporting and editorial, auction, and art fair coverage. ArtObserved has a unique access level to events in the art world and we work with reporters in many different countries and fly correspondents to events globally. ArtObserved attempts to innovate beyond what is being achieved by other related art news sites. We seek to bring an ethical, unbiased and informative account of relevant art news globally. We also work to distinguish ourselves internally by giving an inordinate degree of responsibility and discretion to those with whom we choose work.

There are a number of business development plans to expand the site and we would welcome your submissions to be a part of them.

In short, our company is a recognized top player in the online art media space, which is a very high barrier to entry / highly sought after sector within the web. Some existing knowledge of the global contemporary art world is expected.

Qualifications: Some existing knowledge of the global contemporary art world is expected.

Please send cover letter and resume to info@artobserved.com with subject “AO Internship.”
