It's Hard to Compete When You Don't Pay Jack

by Robert Boyd

Doesn't reviewing art exhibits for money sound like fun? If you answered yes, then check this out:
The Houston Press is looking for an art reviewer to cover shows at local museums and galleries. You don't have to have an art history degree, but you do need a store of knowledge, the ability to write clearly and persuasively, an opinion, and the guts to express that opinion.
Now on the other hand, if you would prefer to write reviews for free, The Great God Pan Is Dead wants to talk to you. Ability to string together words in English is our prime requirement. Embittered outrage, snark, dyspepsia, and apoplexy will be looked on favorably. Alcoholic hacks and conspiracy theorists welcome. If you can get shitfaced at a gallery, get bodily thrown out, and still turn in a 750 word review (or a 2000 word first-person account), well, this might be the place for you.



  1. Just posted this in the FB group Houston Artist's Collective. Maybe you will have some interest.

  2. Dean, you fill the role of "sober, fair-minded critic." So you can see why we need your exact opposite to fill out the roster.
