Museum seeks women to sleep

January 31, 2009 5:57:31 AM PST
Looking for work? You don't even need to be awake for this gig. The New Museum of New York City is seeking women between the ages of 18 and 40 to participate in an art installation where a woman sleeps in a bed in the gallery space. The pay is $10 an hour.

The museum's director of special exhibitions calls the work by Chinese artist Chu Yun "a living sculpture, but one in which you have someone there and doing almost nothing." He says the artist selects the women.

The installation is part of an exhibition called "The Generational: Younger Than Jesus," featuring emerging international artists born after 1976. It opens in April.

The museum says women hired for the bed installation are expected to sleep for 6 hours.
