Rhizome is growing!
We are accepting applications for the position of Program Assistant. This New York-based, full-time role will provide communications and administrative support for our artistic program, online and IRL, which includes events, publishing, artist commissions, exhibitions, and archival accessions. The full job description can be found here.
This role is the final position in an overall staff expansion supported by two major gifts given on the occasion of our 25th anniversary: the Endless Nameless gift from artist Rafaël Rozendaal, and a major “change capital” grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
If you are not sure if you’re qualified for this position, please apply. We are seeking a good fit for our staff and believe qualities like emotional intelligence and an interest in our unique program are more important than a previous job title. We welcome candidates with learning experience outside of traditional modes of schooling and with working experience not typically associated with art jobs (there is no degree requirement for this position). Candidates from groups underrepresented in arts administration are encouraged to apply; we are always in the process of making Rhizome an increasingly supportive place to work.
To apply, please send a cover letter and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, December 17, 2021.
