Wanted: Stranger Visual Art Intern
Three months of Shangri-La with my wry and well-outfitted viz-art intern, Jamey Braden, are about to come to an end.
The good news for any incoming intern is that she’ll train you, and she is worth knowing. The job involves putting together the art calendar every week, and occasionally Slogging about what you see out there, art-wise. It’s probably an 8-hour weekly commitment that lasts about three months, and you should be able to come into the Capitol Hill office to work.
My ideal candidate is someone who wants to be an art critic eventually—and while the internship is unpaid, most of my interns write at least one published review, if not more, by the end of their time—but minimally, I have to have somebody who knows the basics about contemporary art and the local scene (who’ll notice if a big gallery is missing from the listings, for instance).
What else? Attention to detail, naturally. Sense of humor, I beg you. No flakes. Send me a note and a resume if you’re interested: firstname.lastname@example.org. And tell me, if you could transport yourself to any art show in the world right this second, which one would it be, and why.
Here’s a depiction of the work:
