JOB OVERVIEW

Hello! Artist Gretchen Andrew is looking to hire a digital studio assistant to help with general operations and to assist with her residency at London’s National Gallery X 

  • Part-Time, 10 hours/week
  • Flexible Hours, approximately broken into 2 X 5 hour days
  • $800/ Month
  • 4 paid hours a month can be applied to learning a mutually beneficial new skillset, such as animation 
  • Remote, slight preference for London-based 
  • Starts with a 3-month contract, hopefully, extended but do apply if you are looking for a summer job. 

Responsibilities include:

  • Formulation of notes into proposals and presentations
  • Invoicing using Stripe 
  • Creating VR exhibitions and online viewing rooms
  • Photoshop editing of artwork photographs
  • Basic website updates
  • Organizing expressions of gratitude 
  • Creating promotional content, basic or advanced video editing is very welcome

  • Developing artist assets
  • Physical & digital newsletter mailing
  • Keeping international gallery and art dealer team in the loop
  • Breaking press into scheduled tweets
  • Creating reports on artwork’s impact on activist issues such as internet literacy

With London’s National Gallery Gretchen Andrew has been taking on the challenge of creating processes and frameworks for digital loan agreements that would allow the National Gallery and other institutions to digitally loan artworks into VR and other digital environments. Working closely with 7 of the best VR platforms from around the world, the residency will result in the creation of comparative VR exhibitions with works by Gretchen Andrew alongside those from The National Gallery’s collection. The residency has already created a digital loan process agreement to introduce into the larger museum community along with Digital Facilities Reports and an “Institution’s Guide to exhibiting in VR.”  

With London’s National Gallery Gretchen is looking for a digital studio assistant to help:

  • Design, curate, and install the VR experiences on Artland, Ezel, Voritc, New Art City, Mozilla Hubs, Kunstmatrix, and ArtSteps. This requires no coding. All platforms can be easily learned. 
  • Filling out the digital facilities reports for each platform
  • Facilitate VR filming at Kew Gardens (if located in London)
  • Arranging supplemental content, video/audio tours 

Experience creating VR exhibitions or online viewing rooms is cool but not required. 

About Gretchen Andrew

Named by TheArtGorgeous as one of the Kindest People in the Art World (Cover, summer 2021) Gretchen Andrew manipulates systems of power with art, glitter, and code. She is best known for her playful hacks on major art world and political institutions, including Frieze, The Whitney Biennial, Artforum, The Turner Prize, and The Next American President.  In these digital performances she reimagines reality with art and desire. She does this by making assemblage “vision boards” that she programs to become top internet search results. The feminine and trivialized materials of her vision boards purposefully clash with the male-dominated worlds of AI, programming, and political control they also operate within. 

Applications

To apply please email Gretchen with some information about your relevant experience and professional interests:
