Do you have at least 5 years of curatorial experience? Consider applying to Creative Time, the arts organization that’s funded public arts programs such as Duke Riley’s LED-lit pigeons over the East River (above) and Tom Sachs’ epic SPACE PROGRAM: Mars.

Creative Time has been bringing us high-quality, strange, and smart public arts programming since 1974, with an eye towards politically-charged works and projects that seem unlikely candidates for funding. So if you’re up for the task of writing so eloquently about an artwork that it can persuade someone to give you money for light-up pigeons, this is the job for you!

There’s more information about the position here. Resumes, cover letters, and two references should be emailed to jobs@creativetime.org.

Good news! The deadline to apply for the Two Trees Cultural Space Subsidy Program has been extended until July 15th.

Here at AFC, we’re big fans of Two Trees efforts to grow the cultural community in DUMBO by providing affordable workspace for artists and organizations. As a participants ourselves, we can testify to the fact that the below market rents offered to awardees can be transformative. The workshops, open house and ongoing programming we run simply wouldn’t be possible without it.  

Each year, the organization reviews applications for the 50,000 square feet of space it’s set aside to be rented at below market rates.  Two Trees has subsidized space for artists like Jeanine Oleson and Eric Lopresti (both are IMG MGMT alumni) as well as non-profit organizations like Art in General, Triangle and NYFA. We want to see DUMBO continue to thrive as a destination for community-focused art. If for no other reason, because we work here and we like having good neighbors.

You can see the full guidelines and apply here. You have until July 15th and will be notified by October 1st. There are simply too few of these programs in NYC, so get in there. The only thing you have to lose is your far too expensive workspace.
