Location: San Francisco 151 3rd Street San Francisco CA 94103 USA

Industry: 0-2 years

Department: Conservation
Work Hours: Full-Time
Experience: MA, BA, Other

Date Posted: 09 Jan 2020

Valid Through: 16 Feb 2020 23:55

The Conservation department is charged with the care of the collection throughout all phases of an artwork's life, including learning how it was made at the time of acquisition, treating condition issues prior to exhibition, and choosing safe materials for storage. Contemporary art can be made from unorthodox materials, requiring conservators to collaborate with living artists to gain a deeper understanding of their methods, choices and materials of making. Conservators represent different specialties at SFMOMA - electronic media, objects, paintings, paper, and photography - and as a testament to the art of our time, are often working together on solutions in the care of contemporary art. Conservation works closely with the Collections and Exhibitions divisions on a daily basis.

In October 2020, Diego Rivera's historic mural Pan American Unity will be on view in SFMOMA's Roberts Family Gallery and will serve as the cornerstone of a major exhibition by the artist opening at the same time. Created in 1940 as part of the Art in Action program at the Golden Gate International Exposition on Treasure Island, the mural was slated from its inception for display at City College of San Francisco. A comprehensive program of conservation and research is underway to carefully remove the ten-panel fresco from CCSF and transport it to SFMOMA in the summer of 2020. Conservation treatment and stabilization of the panels was completed during the summer of 2019.

Under the supervision of the Project Conservator and the SFMOMA Head of Conservation, the Rivera Mural Conservation Intern will assist as needed, with focus on conservation needs once the mural panels are transported to SFMOMA. Documentation will be a key role, including photographic, graphic and written formats organized into systems for data management. The intern will be encouraged to develop their own materials for sharing the information.

This position requires the willingness and ability to work at multiple job sites in San Francisco.

SFMOMA is an equal opportunity employer committed to diversity.
