Getty 2014 Multicultural Undergraduate Internship:
Educational, University Art Museum, California State University Long Beach

In fall 2014, the UAM will be presenting Barbara Klemm: Light and Dark, Photographs from Germany curated through the ifa (Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen). The ifa describes the exhibition as, “photographs by one of Germany's most distinguished woman photographers. Spanning forty years, Barbara Klemm's works bear witness to Germany's recent history, in a country that was divided for decades. Many of her pictures have become 'icons of contemporary history', shaping the cultural memory of several generations. She has created a body of photographs which combine the documentary and the artistic in a manner seldom encountered in German press photography. She adds her own perspective to the documentary genre, following artistic principles of composition.”

The Getty Educational Intern will be tasked with aiding in the development and scheduling of tours to accommodate the classes, the development of related educational programming, online content to support faculty and students, and the writing of program descriptions and curriculum guides. The education intern will also help in facilitating communication between campus faculty and the UAM Education Department. The Getty Education Intern will work directly with Brian Trimble and other museum staff, docents, interns, and campus faculty.

Getty 2014 Multicultural Undergraduate Internship:
Curatorial, University Art Museum, California State University Long Beach

In January 2015, the UAM presents Jessica Rath: A Better Nectar. Rath is interested in how human survival is impacted by bees’ vulnerability to artificial extremes brought about by reliance upon monoculture farming. In her latest series, she considers the tender symbiosis between native bumblebees and local flora. At the UAM, visitors will experience a multi-sensory, human-scaled native bumblebee nest and be enveloped in human voice interpretations of bee communication. Bumblebee nests consist of short wax “pots” to store food and clumps of brood cells. In A Better Nectar, the nest is exploded—each brood cell measures four feet in length, while two-foot wide honeypots for feeding and pollen storage sit cauldron-like on the gallery floor. Audio components will be embedded into the very structure of the nest through speakers and woofers designed by Rath in collaboration with sculptor Ian Schneller of Specimen Products.

The Getty Curatorial Intern will assist Newhouse will facilitate communication between campus faculty who are engaging in the collaborative effort. The intern will research opportunities for local and regional outreach activities before and during the UAM exhibition. The intern will also work closely with Curator of Education Brian Trimble in the development of related educational programming as well as online content to support faculty and students.
