Deadline: Tuesday, December 3rd at 9am EST

Send a cover letter and resume to: [log in to unmask]

  
Rhizome is seeking a digital preservation leader to bring our award-winning
digital art conservation program to its next phase, and to steward the ArtBase
archive of born-digital, internet-based, software and computer art. The
successful candidate will work inside a lively contemporary art museum
alongside a dynamic team at the forefront of art and technology culture, with
the opportunity to make significant contributions to the digital preservation
field. ABOUT US Rhizome is a non-profit art organization based in the iconic
New Museum in NYC. Since 1996, its programs, many of which happen on the
internet at rhizome.org, have supported contemporary art engaged with
technology, as well as critical approaches to the broader aesthetic, social
and political implications of new tools and media. The ArtBase is central to
this mission, as an online archive of digital art containing over 2,000
artworks - providing free, open, and permanent access to a living and historic
collection of seminal digital art objects. A small organization with big
impact, Rhizome has a strong international profile and is a leading authority
in its field.

  
ABOUT THE ROLE

  
The successful candidate will lead the organization's burgeoning Digital
Conservation program into a significant new stage, at the center of Rhizome's
programs and mission. This includes:

  
+ Hands-on technical conservation work on the ArtBase collection and other
special projects, requiring new research to benefit the organization and wider
digital preservation field;

+ Collections development and new accessions, working alongside curatorial
staff - identifying and facilitating the accession of born-digital materials,
often in liaison with artists/creators themselves;

+ Continuously improving Rhizome's infrastructure for the preservation of
born-digital materials (collections management software, metadata structure,
etc);

+ Identifying and initiating new projects of strategic importance and wider
relevance to the field;

+ Advocacy of the program and organization to the preservation community -
maintaining an awareness of and adherence to best practices in digital
preservation through participation in relevant conferences, workshops, and
professional networks

  
In addition, the program would benefit from a candidate also equipped and
enthusiastic to undertake:

  
+ Overall strategic thinking - prioritizing activities and resources to
consider the longevity and impact of the program;

+ Senior partnership cultivation - developing/maintaining relationships,
cultivating new institutional partners, and building an advisory committee.
Like all Rhizome staff, the Digital Conservator will be expected to feed into
our overall institutional

knowledge of internet culture, technology and contemporary art, and input into
the work of the entire team.

  
REQUIRED

  
+ Demonstrated interest in the arts or visual culture, and technology;

+ A passion for the digital preservation field, with knowledge of current
topics, methodologies, networks, ideas and key individuals;

+ Broad, hands-on proficiency with some of the many technologies used in
digital art (i.e. basic fluency in one or more programming languages;
experience with range of computer hardware), and able to develop new technical
skill quickly;

+ An emerging or established leader, who is entrepreneurial, can work
autonomously, yet remains accessible, friendly and responsive to alignment
from ED and other staff;

+ Clear and effective written and verbal communication, including publishing
specialist conversation research papers (formally or informally),
presentations, and other advocacy & dissemination;

+ Diplomatic, enthusiastic manner in liaising with artists in the collection,
and other stakeholders.

  
PREFERRED

  
While Rhizome is open to non-traditional candidates who show exceptional
promise in this developing field, the following may be preferred:

  
+ Direct experience with digital preservation and access technologies,
standards, and workflows - knowledge of specifications for digital repository
systems and related technologies, including write blockers, emulators, file
format identification, file migration, and media conversion;

+ Experience with museum collections management systems, such as
CollectiveAccess;

+ Master's degree from an ALA-accredited program or equivalent;

  
Rhizome is accepting applications from national & international candidates who
would be willing to relocate to New York.
