Discovering AYN in partnership with Art Frankly is a monthly program that welcomes the public into AYN Foundation long- term presentations at Mana Contemporary to further learn and understand the practice of their featured artists: John Chamberlain, Dan Flavin, Michael Heizer, Rammellzee, Fred Sandback and Andy Warhol.
This seasonal internship allows one intern per three-month season to develop a public program providing deep insight into a corresponding seasonally chosen artist to the public (accessible for all ages). Spring 2022’s artist of choice will be Rammellzee (1960-2010), an artist known for his graffiti, hip-hop music, and mixed-media sculptures. His self- titled, “Gothic Futurism” style was characterized by its bright colors, barbed letters, and use of language as technology.
Interns do not need previous experience working within an art foundation or institution. Interns should have experience handling sensitive materials, preparing presentations, a self-starting attitude, problem-solving skills, flexibility, and an interest in contemporary art. Interns should be familiar with GSuite. Interns are responsible for commuting to and from Jersey City, but living in Jersey City is not a requirement.
