Hello. Marian Goodman. Hire an administrative assistant please.

“Responsibilities will range from general administrative tasks to special projects involving artist- and exhibition-related research.  Duties may also include: cataloguing archival and reference materials, assembling press kits, compiling auction results and organizing the gallery’s library of exhibition catalogues and artists’ visuals. … Applicants must be organized and detail-oriented, and should possess a solid background in art history and a working knowledge of contemporary art.  Strong computer skills and knowledge of foreign languages are also preferred.”

Sounds like this for-profit gallery needs an administrative assistant not an unpaid intern. This is a job not a training position. Pay your interns please.
