The J. Paul Getty Museum seeks an Associate Interpretive Content Specialist to support our ambitious display and exhibition program. This permanent position within the division of Education, Public Programs, and Interpretive Content will serve a pivotal role crafting our interpretation from draft to public presentation. Directly supporting our mission to “inspire curiosity about, and enjoyment and understanding of, the visual arts,” you will shape our content narrative, strategy, and language for audience and platform needs through thoughtful writing, editing, and communication.
Are you passionate about art and the stories it tells? Do you believe in the beauty and power of precisely crafted language? Can you bring an optimistic and collaborative attitude to our team each day?
Collaborating across Curatorial, Exhibitions, Design, Interpretive Content, and other departments, the Associate Interpretive Content Specialist is a central part of the content development for both permanent collection displays and exhibitions. You will serve as a key editorial authority over public-facing didactic and interpretive texts. You will bring to bear our collective passion, knowledge, and research to develop inventive content that engages diverse audiences both in-gallery and off-site.
With the project team, you will review the hierarchy, structure, and content of interpretive materials in relation to the exhibition/installation interpretive goals, audience needs, and Getty accepted guidelines. You will recommend or execute changes to wording, sequencing, and design; you will identify strategies and tools to advance interpretive goals; and you may advise or spearhead didactic sections of exhibitions or other content platforms.
