Sunday, June 21, 2009

If I didn't already have the job of talking naked White People off the edge of buildings now that Eddie Bauer declared bankruptcy I might actually apply for this position myself, but since I'm not I'll post it up here:

Asian American Arts Centre (AAAC)

Part-time Archivist for non-profit arts organization in Manhattan

Asian American Arts Centre (AAAC) seeks an enthusiastic archivist to develop, maintain, and provide access to the physical and digital archives for Asian American contemporary artists.

About the Organization and Archives:
Asian American Arts Centre brings cultural events in the visual and traditional arts to the general public since its establishment in 1974. Its aim is to address the distinctive concerns of Asian Americans in the United States, and their linkages to other cultural communities. Founded as a not-for-profit community arts organization, AAAC specializes in contemporary art exhibitions and archives that engage viewers in the historical and cultural presence of Asian American artists and those Americans influenced by Asia.

AAAC Artist Archive, a research archive of over 1,500 entries dating back to 1945, has been developed from the original slide archive that started in 1982. Artist vertical files have been accumulated documenting the history of Asian Pacific American artists in the United States. The first portion of it will be available as the first-of-its-kind digital archive on in the summer of 2009.
