ASAI is looking to appoint one part-time researcher to produce new content on artists for their online research platform. The task of the researcher is to access images, career information, and archival material from/on selected artists; to organise this material, and publish it online on the ASAI website.
The post requires a good knowledge of South African art, artists, and the artworld at large. The successful candidate must be able to work independently, to analyse and organise information and act on gaps. This project requires the researcher to have good people and communication skills, and to pay keen attention to detail. The researcher will be required to post content online, meaning that experience with WordPress will be advantageous. Knowledge of and access to artists in the SADC region will be an additional advantage.
