Generous donation for curatorial internship programme Adam Art Gallery has received a generous donation from local philanthropist Barbara Blake to establish a part-time paid internship. The programme will enable recent graduates and early-career art professionals to work with the gallery to develop hands-on knowledge of curatorial practice and exhibition-making. Interns will work alongside the team in the Adam Art Gallery office at Victoria University of Wellington’s Kelburn campus, with opportunities to undertake self-directed research as well as contribute to the gallery’s activities. “In my life, art is a source of discussion and debate, intellectual and spiritual nourishment, beauty and joy,” Barbara says. “I studied art history at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London in the 1980s, and when I came home, I was lucky to get my first position at the National Art Gallery in Wellington. “I learned on the job from those with more experience and

expertise,” she explains. “I am so happy to be able to assist the Adam Art Gallery in establishing an internship so that young graduates, making the first steps in their careers, can learn from the talented and dedicated curatorial team headed by Adam Art Gallery director Christina Barton.” “For the recipient, a contested and paid internship will mean their work is valued financially as well as academically.” The internship will be advertised nationally and applications will be assessed by a panel, which will include the donor, gallery staff and an external art professional with experience in curatorial work. Christina says the selected candidate would “demonstrate they have the requisite skills and enthusiasm to contribute to our programme”. “They will work closely with us on a specific project so they learn a range of skills but also can enjoy a sense of achievement.” Art history graduates will be

Diamonds aren’t all that rare and were manufactured into a romantic symbol by a company called De Beers in the early 1900’s. They own most of the diamond mines in the world and create their own artificial scarcity.
