ASSOCIATION OF MOVING IMAGE ARCHIVISTS
Art21, a non-profit contemporary art organization based in
, seeks an archivist/archive consultant to advise on New York City
the organization of the Art21 archive and the creation of a web-based platform to catalogue and access the existing archive,
as well as new material to be added to archive in the future. We would like the archivist to start work at Art21 in January 2006 if possible,
and no later than February 2006. Work will be on a temporary, consultant basis, for a total of approximately 160 hours. Salary commensurate
Art21 produces the Emmy-nominated PBS documentary series Art:21–Art in the Twenty-First Century,
and the video material for this series is the core component of the Art21 archive. To date, three seasons of Art:21 have been completed:
each season consists of four one-hour broadcast programs, and each program profiles 3-5 contemporary visual artists. Art21 has thus far
filmed 500-600 hours of footage for the series (with corresponding written transcripts), primarily on anamorphic 16x9 Digital Beta, with some
mini-DV, DV-Cam, film (transferred to DigiBeta) and other formats. Season Four of the series is in pre-production and all material created for
new season will be added to the archive.
The first stage in creating the database is to create the Archive database and Web interface for internal use by Art21 staff.
Art21 will transfer its current video and film database to the new Archive database, indexing all footage according to standardized
search terms. Art21 staff will use the new Web interface to catalogue all new tapes as they are created, ensuring the accuracy of
indexed information and the effectiveness of search terms.
The second stage is to introduce the Online Catalogue as a public resource, allowing users worldwide to search the catalogue and request
access to unedited footage and transcripts. Finally, Art21 will create a system to track the use of the Online Catalogue.
In addition to the broadcast programs, Art21 creates companion books, extensive education and outreach programs, and a highly-trafficked
web site – www.pbs.org/art <http://www.pbs.org/art> - which provides further information on this project. Art21 also produces additional videos,
beyond the Art:21 series. While the Art:21 raw footage is the first priority to be organized by the archivist, Art21 would ultimately like to organize
all materials – including supplementary video research materials, still images, etc. - created by Art21 into a comprehensive archive which can
eventually be accessed by both internal Art21 staff and external users.
Art21 does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, color, religion, national origin, age, disability or veteran status, and honors and welcomes
all qualified applicants to apply. Please send resumes, via email only, to firstname.lastname@example.org
