Archives Intern - Trisha Brown Archive

Posted on November 29, 2018

Description

One of the most acclaimed and influential choreographers of her time, and an artist whose work has earned recognition in numerous museum exhibitions and collections, Trisha Brown (1936-2017) has forever changed the landscape of visual art. Her movement vocabulary, and the new methods that she and her dancers adopted to train their bodies, remain one of her most pervasive legacies within international dance. The Trisha Brown Dance Company preserves this legacy through the reconstruction and remounting of her major proscenium and site-specific works, as well as the management of the Trisha Brown Archive, which records her meticulous creative process over many decades.

Responsibilities

The Trisha Brown Archive provides information and access to primary resources relating to the life and work of Trisha Brown, as well as the origins, development, and activities of the Trisha Brown Dance Company since its founding in 1970. Trisha Brown Archive is currently accepting applications for the position of Archives Intern for the Spring 2019 Semester. Archives interns will become a vital member of the archives team by assisting with such projects as archival arrangement, rehousing, and description; digitization of selected material for preservation and access; cataloguing of moving image and sound recordings; and research, as needed.
