Someone is out there still getting jobs though, we promise. The Guggenheim Museum has just announced that they are hiring David Van Der Leer as their new Assistant Curator of Architecture and Design. Now that he’s leaving Steven Holl‘s firm for greener pastures, he’ll be cutting his teeth in his new role by helping create the Guggenheim’s Frank Lloyd Wright exhibit which opens next year, as well as trying to put something together for the museum’s 50th anniversary. Here’s a bit from Art Daily about Van Der Leer’s credentials:

Prior to joining the Guggenheim, Mr. Van der Leer was Publications and Exhibitions Manager for Steven Holl Architects, where he developed several exhibitions and initiated and produced numerous publications. A frequent lecturer and contributor to such prestigious architectural publications as Domus, Azure, Mark, Pin-Up and the Architect’s Newspaper, Mr. Van der Leer previously worked for architect Rem Koolhaas at the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) in Rotterdam, Netherlands, and for 010 Publishers, also in Rotterdam. He earned his MA in Urban and Architectural Theory at the Department of Art and Cultural Sciences at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam.
