25 Sep Internship Opportunity: The Fridge
The Fridge is currently seeking an intern to help run the gallery. They have a new exhibition every four weeks and a new event every weekend, and are currently developing a retail space/second exhibition space in what was the back room at The Fridge, now called The Mini-Fridge. They are also focusing on building out their web presence. They predominantly show art from street and graffiti artists and have welcomed artists from all disciplines into our space since our opening in 2009.
The Fridge recently finished their second Fresh Produce festival, welcoming 60+ artists and six collectives into the space over five weeks. We have exhibits from street artists ULTRA, DECOY and TAXI GANG for Fall/Winter 2012 – read more about the line-up here.
