NEW YORK -- (AP) Looking for work? Here's a gig where you not only get to sleep on the job -- it is the job.
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 called the work by Chinese artist Chu Yun "a living sculpture, but one in which you have someone there and doing almost nothing." He said the artist will select 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 said women hired for the bed installation are expected to sleep for six hours.
