Paint Your Future as the Getty’s New Senior Editor

Attention, art lovers. The J. Paul Getty Museum is on the hunt for a new senior editor to take the lead on all books published by Getty Publications. This is your time to shine.

If hired, you’ll be overseeing the production process, managing projects through acquisition, development, transmittal and beyond. This is a great opportunity for someone who is ready to be knee-deep in the publishing marketplace, identifying new opportunities, negotiating contracts and working with top-notch authors.

A minimum of seven years in publishing and two to three years of museum publishing experience are must-haves. Knowledge of the art history realm and an interest in digital publishing will make you stand out, too. Are you willing to travel to academic conferences to recruit new talent? Perfect. Those who think they have what it takes should apply here.

Tom Christie Makes Fun of Offshore Typists in LA Weekly

datanet-3.jpg

Tom Christie at the LA Weekly interviews LACMA’s Michael Govan, and it’s all art, art, money, and art. The fun starts when the Weekly sends the interview tape to India for transcription (which is insane, as there are perfectly fine local services that are fast, accurate, and well-priced.) Christie writes:

The results were sometimes puzzling and often amusing. The strangely named figure Migetti was, of course, The Getty, while and four halls turned out to be Andy Warhol. Gentler pipe stood in for gentrified. And when Govan used the expression a pig in a poke, it was translated as the rather wonderful A Pagan of Poke.

But my favorite misspelling was for Eli Broad, who, as everyone knows, is no Eli Broke.

Of course, this would be considered racist or at least insensitive if the National Review ran such a piece.

Why isn’t Christie keeping jobs in Southern California?
