The Asia Art Archive (AAA) offers full-time summer internships and part-time spring and fall internships to undergraduate and graduate students from both local and international schools. Internships at AAA are unpaid, but they present a rare chance to gain insight into a dynamic organisation at the centre of recent art in the region.
The internship programme at AAA is an opportunity for participants to learn how a non-profit organisation runs, to discover new interpretations on recent art, and engage with artists, art professionals, and other students from around the world. By supporting the intellectual development of AAA interns, while informing their future aspirations, AAA seeks to instigate new ideas and self-discovery.
Spring Term: Commences in Jan 2017
Application deadline: Monday, 9 Jan 2017

About Asia Art Archive: AAA was initiated in 2000 in response to the urgent need to document and secure the multiple recent histories of contemporary art in the region. With an international Board of Directors, an Advisory Board made up of noted curators and critics, and research posts in the region, AAA has collated one of the most valuable collections of material on contemporary art in the region. Built of 85% donated material, the collection now holds over 50,000 records, comprised of hundreds of thousands of physical and digital items, and it continues to grow. Accessible free of charge from AAA’s physical space and searchable from anywhere in the world via the online catalogue, much of the collection is now also available globally via the Collection Online.
Through collecting and making information on the recent history of contemporary art in Asia easily accessible, AAA aims to facilitate understanding, research, and writing in the field, enrich existing global narratives, and re-imagine the role of the archive. AAA is a point of convergence for critical thinking and dialogue and a proactive platform for diverse public, educational, and residential programmes for a wide range of audiences. At the core of its mission is AAA’s commitment to create a collection belonging to the public, existing not in an enclosed space, but in a space that is open and productive, generating new ideas and works that continually reshape the Archive itself.
