After 2 years and 4 months working for a Kensington gallery, I am now, again, searching for a job in that cruel, yet thrilling Art world.
Cruel, because of the fierce competition of course. Even with appropriate academic background and professional experience.
One positive thing though: I got through the interview phase with White Cube, the Serpentine galleries, the Hayward gallery and a high end Art consultant. Not bad in comparison with the Parisian market (I NEVER got called back for an interview).
But I’m well aware it’s going to be tough. The harsh reality -still- is, without a solid network, good luck to find a job.
As being unemployed gives me more time to see some Art, I decided to give it a go and check the World goes Pop show at the Tate Modern: Let’s say that I got a confirmation I’m definitely not into Pop Art. Too predictable, even when produced outside the ususal US/UK. The themes remain the same, and visually, no surprises at all. Yeah, you can say I’m blasé.
In a couple of hours I’ll have a look at the London Art Fair: I’m hoping I’ll come across some exciting stuff. And perhaps a job opportunity?…
