Project Archivist, Andy Warhol Photography Collection
Stanford University
Stanford

The Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University is seeking a full-time archivist
to lead the Warhol Photography Collection Project.

  
From 1976 until his death in 1987, Andy Warhol used his Minox 35EL camera to
meticulously document his daily life. The Andy Warhol Photography Collection
includes more than 3,500 photographic negatives and 3,600 contact sheets of
multiple photographs. The Andy Warhol Photography Collection is a new addition
to the Cantor's existing collection of Warhol works and reaffirms the
university's preeminence in the study of the history of photography, from
Eadweard Muybridge to Carleton Watkins to Andy Warhol to Robert Frank to Lee
Friedlander.

  
The Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University is a vital and dynamic
institution with a venerable history. Founded in 1891 with the university, the
historic museum was expanded and renamed in 1999 for lead donors Iris and B.
Gerald Cantor. The Cantor's encyclopedic collection spans 5,000 years,
includes more than 40,000 artworks and beckons visitors to travel around the
world and through time: from Africa to the Americas to Asia, from classical to
contemporary. With 24 galleries presenting selections from the collection and
more than 20 special exhibitions each year, the Cantor serves Stanford's
academic community, draws art lovers from the San Francisco Bay Area and
beyond, and attracts campus visitors from around the world. Free admission,
free tours, lectures, family activities, plus changing exhibitions make the
Cantor one of the most well-attended university art museums in the country and
a great resource for teaching and research on campus.
