The iconic American artist Sol LeWitt once worked at the book counter of The Museum of Modern Art, New York, in the 1960s. It was there that he met his coworkers Dan Flavin and Lucy Lippard, and where Jeff Koons would begin working the ticket booth in the following decade. To fund his early art practice, Richard Serra started an art installation and furniture-moving business, working with assistant Philip Glass.

Many artists who have worked within museums and arts institutions have gone on to make art history.
Held at David Zwirner in 2012 and 2016, the exhibition series People Who Work Here was dedicated to showcasing works by artists who also work at the gallery. Inspired by this tradition, Mary Howard and Alec Smyth, both members of David Zwirner's sales team, have organised an exhibition titled People Who Work There at the second-floor Brooklyn gallery cfcp. The exhibition features works by twenty-eight artists who are currently on staff at David Zwirner.
People Who Work There brings together multifaceted works across a vast range of media, including drawing, photography, printmaking, video, painting, sculpture, and installation.
David Zwirner's latest Online Viewing Room is presented in conjunction with People Who Work There. This online exhibition features a selection of available works by artists who work in various departments at the gallery, including sales, press, finance, and operations. A number of works shown here are also on view in the exhibition at cfcp.
All proceeds from this Viewing Room directly benefit the artists and cfcp.
