Last week was quite a whirlwind of events. Monday, I had job interview for the position of gallery assistant. Tuesday, I got a call from them that they are offering the job position. I readily accepted the offer via phone. Wednesday, I visited my teacher's studio. He had a surprise for me. They were offering me a job. Thursday, I turned down the offer of the first company. I texted my teacher after I turned down the offer that "I am in!!!!"
It boiled down to career and passion. I want to be part of the local art scene. I want to learn from people who inspire me and who will guide me to pursue what I want . The people I am going to work with are brutally honest, very smart, and very down to earth. I am actually afraid and excited to work with them.
I'll be part of the curatorial team under four heavy names in the art industry. I will keep you posted guys!
