Rolling basis


  • Gagosian is pleased to offer a three-month internship position at our Grosvenor Hill location. We are continuously looking for committed and proactive individuals, with a strong interest and passion for art. Applicants must have the ability to work in a fast-paced environment, multi-task and prioritise. 
  • The Gagosian internship programme has been designed to be an inclusive and development focused experience, to enable candidates to learn essential business skills, build industry knowledge, grow their professional network and to develop specific art related interests, with the guidance and support from experienced Gagosian colleagues.
  • We believe that our Gagosian interns are integral to the functioning of the gallery. Through focused development, we aim to attract and retain a diverse pool of talent. 
  • The three-month internship will support the personal and professional growth of the candidate to enhance future career opportunities, both at Gagosian and in the wider art world.

Development programme

  • All interns are assigned a supervisor and mentor who actively support both the personal and career development of the individual. Supervisors meet with interns daily, managing their tasks and setting learning objectives. The mentor works in a different department, offering wider support by sharing career knowledge and answering any broader questions about the gallery and/or industry.
  • Attention will be paid to an individual’s interest in a particular field, and efforts will be made to facilitate these where possible. Supervisors will tailor the intern’s development plan by assigning specific learning objectives that will reflect and benefit this. These will be achieved through larger research-based projects that will be presented to other members of staff in their final weeks in the gallery.
  • Professional networking will be encouraged through regular interaction with gallery directors, hosting local gallery intern events, attendance of exhibition openings (both gallery and institutional) and global internet working opportunities.– Provision to develop skills in Photoshop, Artnet and Google Sketch up.
  • Following the programme, interns can sign up to tailored communications about special gallery events and networking opportunities for our internship alumni.
