Yes I got a job.
For me to accept a job it has to be soemthing, really.
For years I have been curating basically for free (i-5 Gallery) or as an entrepeneur (Coagula Projects Gallery), along with the occasional small-compensation show and the even less occasional prominent gallery show.
But all that has changed. I am the exhibition director of a large Los Angeles art gallery.
They pay me to get up in the morning and go to work. The first week highlight was ending the gallery’s relationship with over 20 artists.
The second week highlight was making sure the full page September show advertisement for a national art glossy looked as good as possible. The gallery’s owner made sure the staff ordered a box of Most Art Sucks books from the publisher to display and sell at the front desk.
Once we clean up the gallery’s website in a week or two, I will tell you all about it if you haven’t found out already thru the grapevine.
