Contemporary Art Review Los Angeles (Carla) is a quarterly magazine, online art journal, and podcast committed to being an active source for critical dialogue surrounding Los Angeles’ art community. Carla serves as a centralized space for art writing that is bold, honest, approachable, and focused on the here and now.
Carla is looking for an intern to work 1–2 days a week, providing support across web, print, and podcast production. The intern will work very closely with the editor-in-chief and managing editor on admin and organizational tasks surrounding the publication of critical art writing across our platforms.
Potential responsibilities may include:
- Communicating with galleries
- Filing and resizing images, reformatting captions per in house style guidelines
- Drafting web, email, and social media posts/campaigns
- Providing research, transcription, and editorial support for the podcast
- Updating internal tracking and organizational documents
- Aid in maintaining production calendars
- Transcribing interviews
- Assistance with shipping and distribution of magazine
Intern must have access to their own computer. Ideal candidates will be communicative, have close attention to detail, and have the ability to work independently and prioritize tasks. Familiarity with WordPress, Mailchimp, and Google Drive is a plus—working/basic knowledge of Photoshop is ideal. Previous writing and editing experience are also preferred.
Applicants should be in the Greater Los Angeles area and have a proven interest and desire to participate in the Los Angeles art community. However, this position is currently remote due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. A general interest in and knowledge of contemporary art is required.
