The Getty Research Institute seeks a motivated and knowledgeable archivist to process, preserve and make accessible several archives related to the historic Los Angeles Woman’s Building. As a major center of the feminist art movement of the 1970s and 1980s, the Woman’s Building played an instrumental role in shaping both the field of feminist art and American arts education. Among the collections included in this project are records of the Woman’s Building and the archives of artist groups such as The Waitresses, Sisters of Survival and Feminist Art Workers, and artists Nancy Buchanan and Faith Wilding. Materials include research, project, and administrative files, photographs, posters, ephemera and audiovisual material.
This is a limited term position for 13 months supported by a Federal Save America’s Treasures grant administered by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
