Mike Licht: Vincent’s Bedroom, after Van Gogh
Unlike other museums around the country, the New Museum of Contemporary Art is hiring. The New York City institution will pay women $10 an hour to sleep in an exhibition during museum hours (noon to 6 PM Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday; noon to 9 PM Thursday and Friday).
“The Generational: Younger Than Jesus” installation is by artist Chu Yun, who “creates a human sculpture by inducing sleep,” according to NewYorkology.com. It opens in April and runs through mid-June, but competition should be keen, so don’t fall asleep at the switch. Get your résumé in now.
