I think it would be cool to be a Broadie (Broad Museum, Visitor Services Associate ). Hang out with the art. Talk about the work with visitors. And sure, tell peeps not to get too close sometimes.
I was talking with a Marcianomonsta (Marciano Art Foundation, Visitor Services Associate (VSA)) who told me that being a Broadie was just too much and that she liked her new job as a Marcianomonsta much better. Still, I kind of thought I’d enjoy the too much of The Broad and it’s Spectacle of Instagram.
But for all the Broadies working the Kusama Infinity Mirrors show today, it seemed different. Whether or not you were the Broadie with the stopwatch, gently kicking peeps out of the room after 30 seconds, or at any of the other stations, it was just so much crowd control. It looked like a lot of work. A lot of being on for an endless stream of public. Dare I say, an Infinite Public.
