A cornerstone of SFMOMA's identity since the museum first opened in 1935, the department of Painting and Sculpture consistently engages with the art and artists of our time. Whether by supporting artists at early stages of their careers, as founding director Grace McCann Morley did when she presented the first solo museum exhibitions for Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, and Arshile Gorky, or by organizing major retrospectives and thematic exhibitions, SFMOMA is committed to fostering new ideas and approaches to modern and contemporary art.

Our collection features art created between 1900 and the present, and highlights the work of numerous individual artists in depth. Purposefully wide-ranging in scope, areas of concentration include Fauvism, Cubism, and Surrealism in France; Modernism in the United States and Latin America; American Abstract Expressionism, Minimalism and Pop art; postwar German art; and contemporary art from around the globe.

As the first museum on the West Coast dedicated to modern and contemporary art, a large part of SFMOMA's collection focuses on artists from California, and particularly the Bay Area. Numbering more than eight thousand works, our holdings include paintings, sculptures, and works on paper, yet often expand beyond these categories to follow artists and their interests.

The Painting & Sculpture Intern's primary responsibility will be research in support of an exhibition planned for 2021 by curators in the Painting and Sculpture Department. Some research will take place at libraries and archives around the Bay Area and may be supplemented by first-hand study of relevant objects in the museum's collection or in collections around the region.

SFMOMA is an equal opportunity employer committed to diversity.
