Artist Liaison for Andrea Rosen Gallery’s New Space

Artist Liaison for Andrea Rosen Gallery’s New Space
Andrea Rosen Gallery
- New York, NY

Andrea Rosen Gallery is seeking an individual to join an extremely motivated, hardworking, focused and idealistic team of Artist Liaisons. It is a particularly exciting time of growth and expansion within the gallery. We are deepening our Artist Liaison department as we have recently taken on a number of new artists - Josephine Meckseper, Mika Rottenberg, Ryan Trecartin and the collaborative practice of Lizzie Fitch/Ryan Trecartin - and we are opening a new Gallery 2 space, also located on 24th Street. The new space will both revolve around an exciting project-based program that Gallery 2 has developed a strong reputation for, embracing both historical exhibitions and emerging artists, as well as house our Artist Liaison department.

The Artist Liaison is responsible for deeply supporting our living artists in all aspects, including exhibition planning both inside and outside the gallery, museum relations and production. Each Artist Liaison at the gallery is responsible for developing in depth relationships with a specific set of artists and providing a support structure for their artists. Because of their location within the Gallery 2 space, for a special candidate with particular experience, there is also the possibility for the Artist Liaison to be involved in new as well as existing programming. Experience in historical research would be beneficial. Though the Artist Liaison department will be based in the new space, they will not be isolated from the hub of the main space.

While their dialogue will primarily be with their artists, Artist Liaisons are heavily involved in exhibition planning and organization as well as advocating for institutional exhibition and project-based opportunities for their artists. Therefore, we are seeking a candidate with strong relationships with museums and curators as well as a deep familiarity with international institutions. Because of the Artist Liaison’s invaluable in-depth knowledge of the artists’ work and their practice, they will also work closely with the gallery’s Directors and the sales team in order to facilitate this intertwined relationship. Depending on the candidate and their interests, there is also the potential opportunity for the Artist Liaison to extend their expertise into a dialogue with collectors and the public.

Candidate should be likeable, poised, caring, hardworking, and dedicated. Candidate must have a minimum of three years in a high-level administrative position at a gallery or art institution and ideally should have prior experience as an Artist Liaison. Artist relations should be second nature, as should strong written communication skills. We are seeking someone with experience producing complex projects and exhibitions for artists. A deep knowledge of contemporary art and the workings of a gallery are essential. Candidate should be comfortable with travel, as a primary part of the role of the Artist Liaison is to meet artists in person as well as travel to exhibitions.

Candidate must have a well-developed sense of priority, and an understanding and ability to work within the fast pace of the gallery and with discretion. Attention to detail and the ability to multitask are vital as is the ability to track and follow through with a variety of projects that require immediate attention as well as long term care. Knowledge of other languages and Artbase are preferred but not necessary.

Candidate should be engaged in this position and be able to make a long-term commitment of longevity.
Salary commensurate with experience.
