Lacma now casting for the Pierre Huyghe show

Not The Blues Brothers

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (Lacma) is holding auditions for a role in the Pierre Huyghe retrospective, which opens on 23 November. Lacma seeks an “Announcer” who will take part in a forthcoming exhibition, which a museum spokeswoman confirms is, indeed, the Pierre Huyghe show. It’s a male role that requires standing for extended periods of time and the ability to speak clearly and project your voice, states the job ad on the museum website. “Excellent command of the English language is essential.” Suitable attire is also specified, which the successful applicant has to provide. “The performer must wear his own black suit with white collared shirt and black shoes (no sneakers),” it says. Should any aspiring, out-of-work actor think they’ll have to channel their inner Blues Brother for Pierre, think again. “The exhibition of contemporary artwork references the royal courts and male court heralds,” the ad states. Sounds as if Huyghe has something Alice in Wonderlandish in mind for his off-Hollywood debut. Anyone interested in the role (part-time, temporary, $14/hour, up to 29 hours a week) needs to send their résumé right away. “Pierre Huyghe” (until 22 February 2015) is organised by the Centre Pompidou in Paris, in association with Lacma and the Museum Ludwig, Cologne.
