Intern with Suzanne Goldenberg, Brooklyn Army Terminal

Duration: Spring 2017, 2 - 3 months.

Start Date: Mid March 2017.
Location: Brooklyn Army Terminal, 140 58th Street, Brooklyn, NY

Hours/Schedule: 1-2 days per week, on Tues/Thurs/Sat or Sun.

Description: Looking for a reliable intern to help update a website and organize materials and artworks in the studio. Interest in mixed media sculpture, drawing, collage, textiles, and video is a plus.
Qualifications/Skills: Highly organized, computer savvy, familiar with handling artworks and materials.

About the Artist: Suzanne Goldenberg is an artist working in a variety of media including drawing, collage, textiles, video and sculpture. Through an improvisational process, she transforms found and scavenged materials, often what might be considered detritus and of no apparent value, into unexpected sculptural compositions that bear traces of the emotional, the architectural and the comic, but are ultimately non-literal. In these sculptures, the materials retain their histories as the waste by-product of our consumer society, but through a  sensitivity to their other possible lives, Goldenberg transforms them into rich materials forming precarious structures poised between growth and collapse.

About the Artist: Looking to the natural world for inspiration on my obsession with our environment, I encounter altered elements, fluids, solidified capsules, and evaporations. These become random pours, fragments cut-out and peeled off to make hybrids suggestive of constructed matter circulating in the body, nature, and the whole universe—a living organic and cosmic fluid, a primal composite soup. The floating clusters in my "Parallel Universe" series remain indefinable, weaving and shifting between whole and part, questioning and challenging our perception of space and representation.

Intern with Caleb Nussear, Brooklyn Army Terminal

About the Artist: Caleb Nussear is an American artist living in New York City. He holds a B.A. in Philosophy and Religion from Bard College at Simon’s Rock and an M.A. in Social Sciences from the University of Chicago. Mr. Nussear is a self-taught artist, and his work is tinged conceptually with his early education in philosophy and religion.  Overall his work is based on the overlap between complex formal geometries, physical and mathematical concepts of higher dimensionality, the natural landscape as it is found, and finally, a sensual and tensile drawn line. He is comfortable working in drawing, sculpture, performance, photography, and installation; perhaps his favorite method of working is within project-based collaborative ventures with fellow artists and thinkers from a wide range of disciplines.

How to apply: Interested Candidates please send resume and samples of studio work to  Compensation $12 per hour. Serious inquiries only!

About the Artist: Ordinary rituals are part of everyday life. Our personal rituals define who we are, what we value, what we strive for, our dreams. Collectively, they define our culture, our times, our society’s fears and hopes. I am interested in exploring how ordinary, everyday rituals take on extraordinary meaning. I create work that layers and merges fragments of ritual experience combined with the change elements that infuse daily life with mystery, allowing us to interpret art according to our own dreams and desires. My creative process mirrors the themes I am trying to explore. Through a combination of repetition and chance, the meaning often emerges for me after the creation takes place. Then, I uncover it layer by layer as an archeologist might put together a picture of a distant past society by uncovering fragments of elements of their everyday live and rituals.

How to apply: Please send CV, short bio and skills set to Beatrix J. Piesh,
