This post on The Museum of the Future has some great suggestions for young artists who want to get their name and their work out into the world.
The same principles can easily apply to you and your work as you set out into the museum world and look for your perfect job. You’re selling yourself. Not in a depressing way, as in a commodity or an interchangeable part. You’re making the case for why you, and your unique set of skills and your energy and enthusiasm and brilliance. It’s not always a natural thing to do, but it’s so important.
So think about those questions, and try to answer them for yourself. Think about the story you want to tell the world about yourself, and then go and tell it.
