MONA showcases a vibrant continuity, by exhibiting the work of newer generations, whose manifestations differ in form and content. Delving deeper into the artworks, we see a rich interplay of western styles juxtapositioned in local cultural context that gives the art a character that is ‘whole Nepali’, and places Nepal on a global platform.

The Kathmandu Valley has been a center of cultural heritage for thousands of years, spanning many dynasties and ‘school of thought’, to receive its World Heritage Inscription in 1979. To date most great works of Nepali art have been denied a wider audience, being housed in private collections or a part of limited exhibitions. MONA breaks that restrictive barrier, presenting masterpieces, mainly produced after the mid 19th century, to a wider and all inclusive public.

The MONA is an equal opportunity employer, and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status, citizenship status, veteran status, disability or any other criterion specified by federal, state or local laws, in the administration of its employment policy. Please be advised that we may only be able to contact those candidates whose skills and background best fit our employment needs.


MONA offers a wide variety of internships for students interested in the work of Isamu Noguchi or those looking to gain experience working for a museum or in a nonprofit arts organization. Internships at The Noguchi Museum are available for the catalogue raisonné project, in the curatorial and collections department, as well as in the administration and archives departments. While interns will often find themselves involved in a variety of tasks associated with multiple functions of the museum, please express any specific interests in your cover letter. The Museum offers fall, spring, and summer internships for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as recently graduated college students. Internships are typically 1-2 days per week for twelve weeks.
