This week for Five Jobs, AFC’s weekly jobs listing, we bring you gallery jobs. Entry level! Experienced! Somewhere smack dab in the middle! These jobs range from quality internships to exhibitions managers, so there should be a position for everyone, whether you’ve got some gallery chops or you’re just getting started.
Sales Associate at Yossi Milo Gallery
The well-known, photo-centric Yossi Milo gallery is looking for someone with previous experience in a gallery specialized in photography and knowledge of photography history for their new sales associate. Responsibilities include authoring press materials, which requires good writing skills, so make sure your cover letter is up to par.
Art Consulting/Art Gallery Internship at Michael Ingbar Gallery
The Michael Ingbar Gallery wants an intern from now until “sometime in November” who can split his/her time between the gallery and the art consultant side of things. For a total stipend of $792 in exchange for two months of nearly full time labor, it isn’t the most profitable job on this list ($12 dollars a day), but might work for an art history student or artist who wants to try something new.
Web Manager at Aperture Foundation
Solid project managers with a little bit of backend know-how should apply for this position. Aperture is looking for a candidate to provide day-to-day website maintenance, but more than that, they’re looking for someone interested in thinking about the long-term, and best-practices for Aperture’s website in the future. Familiarity with Google Analytics, Magento software development, and DoubleClick for Publishers a must.
Exhibitions Manager at “Modern and Contemporary Art Gallery”
This job involves working closely with the executive staff planning exhibition schedules as well as typical gallery upkeep like maintaining archives and managing budgets. The gallery is unnamed, so you could be landing a position at a big name, especially since they ask for 3-5 years prior experience in exhibition production.
Sales Associate at UGallery
This isn’t your typical art sales position because UGallery isn’t a gallery, it’s an online platform for art sales. Your responsibilities at this position would pertain to building a client base by communicating with interior designers and decorators, art consultants, hotels, etc. so they ask for over three years experience in relation-based sales. There’s also potential for travel between New York and San Francisco.
