The Institute for Contemporary Art (ICA) at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU), designed by the renowned Steven Holl Architects, invites applications for multiple part-time art handler/installers.
Art Handler/Installers will report directly to the Lead Preparator, and assist the Lead Preparator with delivery/receiving and installation/deinstallation of artworks and preparation and maintenance of exhibition spaces. Responsibilities may also include: construction of exhibition furniture and crates; packing and fitting crates, and assistance with inventory control and maintenance of tools and equipment.
Art Handlers/Installers will generally work during the 6-8 week installation and deinstallation periods between the ICA’s three-per-year exhibition cycle, with other hours as required.
Art Handers/Installers work closely with and provide support and assistance to the ICA’s Curatorial Production Manager, the Director of Facilities, Installation, and Exhibition Design, and Acting Registrar.
