“Fast-paced, high-profile artist’s studio in Brooklyn seeks a superbly organized, detail-oriented generalist-type studio assistant, whose primary area of responsibility is to support the artist and project managers through research, visualization and understanding of artistic concepts via information gathering, organizing, sharing and storing”. The acclaimed artist Jenny Holzer is on the lookout for an assistant and this could be you.
For more than thirty-five years, Jenny Holzer has presented her astringent ideas, arguments, and sorrows in public places and international exhibitions, including 7 World Trade Center, the Venice Biennale, the Guggenheim Museums in New York and Bilbao, and the Whitney Museum of American Art. Her medium, whether formulated as a T-shirt, a plaque, or an LED sign, is writing, and the public dimension is integral to the delivery of her work.
Starting in the 1970s with the New York City posters, and continuing through her recent light projections on landscape and architecture, her practice has rivaled ignorance and violence with humor, kindness, and courage. Holzer received the Leone d’Oro at the Venice Biennale in 1990, the World Economic Forum’s Crystal Award in 1996, and the Barnard Medal of Distinction in 2011. She holds honorary degrees from Williams College, the Rhode Island School of Design, The New School, and Smith College.
“Responsibilities will include maintaining and updating project calendars, organizing and tracking text research, processing vendor invoices and updating project budgets, proofing documents, general and very specific research related to artwork fabrication and conceptual ideation, and any other areas where assistance is needed.
The ideal candidate will be analytical, self-motivated, and self-aware, with the ability to anticipate and plan accordingly, and to report quickly and accurately. Must be able to solicit advice and then work independently, and willing to work in the best interests of the artwork and the studio. Unwavering honesty and confidentiality are essential”.
