Typical roles for Dublin art internships

Here are a few examples of roles that our art interns in Ireland have taken on before:

  • Art Curator

    Art curators are responsible for the content of one or more collections within a gallery, overseeing the borrowing or purchasing of artworks, and their display. Interns may be allowed to conduct tours and presentations for guests to the gallery, and liaise with art conservators to maintain the condition of the artworks.

  • Art Teacher/Lecturer

    The role of an art history lecturer goes beyond simply just teaching, as it entails in-depth research about specific artists, artworks, art forms, and so on, to better understand their origins and societal implications throughout different eras. Our internships in Art in Ireland will take interns on a journey through history, discovering the influence of art, culturally, politically, and economically.

  • Conservator

    An art conservator is tasked with the important responsibility of keeping artworks, historical objects, and sites in optimal condition. Interns will learn about the materials and methods conservators employ to prevent pieces of art or history from deteriorating, as well as techniques for restoring damaged artifacts.

  • Art Valuer

    An art valuer is involved in assessing the monetary value of a particular artwork. This information can then be used by auction houses, insurance companies, or art dealers, to accurately insure or sell the item. In some cases, an art valuer may also hold the position of an auctioneer, thus allowing interns to directly participate in the auctioning of artwork.
