Curator

Location: Los Angeles, CA

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Mid Level

We are:

 

Where art starts, but that's only the beginning. We’re the movement for the liberation of creative expression. We believe that art is for everyone, and we're creating the cultural context for how it is created, discovered, and shared.


Founded in August 2000, DeviantArt is the largest online social network for artists and art enthusiasts. We are a platform for emerging and established artists to exhibit, promote, and share their work with an enthusiastic, art-centric community. We have over 45 million registered members and attract over 50 million unique visitors per month. Our members — known as deviants — upload thousands of pieces of original artworks every day–everything from painting and sculpture to digital art, pixel art, films, and anime.

 

We’re looking for a passionate Curator who loves all facets of art to assist in our day-to-day curation efforts.
 

You are:

 

A community savvy curator with impeccable taste, a trained eye, and at least 2 years of experience curating in the online space. You have a thorough understanding of DeviantArt, including our community and history. You are very familiar with the art community and have strong existing roots in the online art world. You have a proven track record of collecting outstanding art from a wide variety of aesthetics and mediums.

 

Because of your prior curation experience, you can immediately recognize quality work in any format. You also have a knack for quickly and succinctly describing extraordinary pieces & artists in writing and in conversation. You are skilled at uncovering emerging tastemakers early-on, and can spot creations with viral potential. You consider yourself a strong communicator and collaborate well with people at all levels of an organization.

 

Preferably, you are able to work onsite in our office in LA, although working remotely can be discussed if needed.

 

As a DeviantArt Curator, you will:

 

  • Spearhead the daily curation of DeviantArt's front page, finding art, mediums and artists to spotlight deserving creations, creatives, and cultures from around the world.
  • Curate ongoing special projects by finding perfect examples of art from different styles and mediums as needed.
  • Collaborate extensively with creative, editorial, community and executive teams to find and highlight the latest & greatest art submitted to DeviantArt.
  • Lead efforts to maintain the integrity and accuracy of various categorization facets.
  • Collaborate with various departments to identify & spotlight artists and their work as needed by the day-to-day operations of the site and its endeavors.

 

We will consider for employment all qualified Applicants, including those with Criminal Histories, in a manner consistent with the requirements of applicable state and local laws, including the City of Los Angeles’ Fair Chance Initiative for Hiring Ordinance.
