It is funny that often when an artist has a job she does not get paid for doing the job, because it is pay enough to be noticed and displayed. It is the joy of being an artist to give away one’s talent and work. So in this light those ‘jobs’ seem particularly uninteresting, humiliating and enslaving. The point of this kind of work remains to be considered not worth doing and having. In addition to that artist as a person and her work are likely on a whim and as a rule to be put down like trash. It is not uncommon to hear there are all kinds of artists (meaning crazy, obscure, obscene, unbalanced, dangerous, poor, bad, dirty, unworthy, suspicious, unpredictable etc) and that curator has to be careful whom to work with such sub-humans, introduce to partners and ask for dinner, as a curator once told me. Well to tell you, curator, if you recognize yourself pay attention, you are absolutely right and hopefully you will never work again. You have this little respect for artists as people and as workers you are in the wrong business.
Just to remind you PhD. candidacy, doctoral degree, artistry, position in an organization do not elevate you to treat people as unintelligent garbage. Never forget.
