How to Get a Job in a Museum or Art Gallery by Allison Baverstock

Rating: ***** (5 out of 5)

Review: A thorough and sobering look at the business of museums and galleries and what it is really like working in this field. The art world sometimes feels like a confusing place, and it’s hard to plan a career because nobody seems to have followed the same route to where they are, erroneously leading one to think that everything depends on luck. So it’s refreshing to read a practical study, with interviews and case studies from people in the field.

The only negative point is that it’s very UK centric, but I guess that’s to be expected. All in all, a very useful read, highly recommended if you’re starting out.
