BFP Creative is pleased to present BEHIND THE WHITE WALLS, an exhibition of artwork by artists employed as preparators at three of New York City’s most significant contemporary art museums; the Guggenheim, MoMA and the Whitney. The exhibit will run from May 8th to May 23rd, 2015, at Brooklyn Fire Proof’s Temporary Storage Gallery, 119 Ingraham Street. There will be an opening reception on Friday, May 15th from 6-10 pm, which will feature music and performances in the garden. These 30 artists--connected by their day-jobs--are making widely varied work, deeply steeped in art history with brilliant layers of humor, sincerity and technical ability.

Behind the White Walls is the finale in a trio of showcases of work by the art handlers of the Whitney. Unlike the previous installments, this show extends the invitation to the artists-employed-as-preparators of the Guggenheim and MoMA. Curated by Norton and Hazel Lee Santino for BFP Creative, with special thanks to Carmen Hermo of the Guggenheim and Elisabeth Sherman of the Whitney for their curatorial assistance.
