$20 General Admission
Free for AFA Members
Please join us for a private tour of the FLAG Art Foundation led by Jon Rider, Assistant Director, and Risa Daniels, Exhibitions and Programs Manager, before the foundation is open to the public.
We will visit two exhibitions:
ETEL ADNAN AND GERHARD RICHTER
The exhibition initiates a tête-a- tête between two masters of contemporary painting—from the vastly different backgrounds of Beirut and Germany—who continue to challenge the concept of working in a single style or media, translating their explosive color abstractions and painting processes to canvas, ceramic, glass, and the antiquated, decorative object of tapestry.
THERE IS NOTHING I COULD SAY THAT I HAVEN’T THOUGHT BEFORE
Daignault’s new series of paintings—part solo exhibition, virtual group show, and curatorial project—resulted from collaborating with thirty artists, including Cory Arcangel, Sadie Barnette, Carol Bove, Robert Gober, Josephine Meckseper, Jonathan Monk, Fred Wilson, and many more. As it’s now rarer to experience a physical art object than its surrogate, the exhibition explores the role of the virtual in contemporary art, as well as ideas of agency, collaborative appropriation, and the traces we leave behind.
FLAG ART FOUNDATION
The FLAG Art Foundation, founded in 2008 by art patron Glenn Fuhrman, is a non-profit contemporary art institution that encourages the appreciation of contemporary art among a diverse audience. FLAG presents four to six exhibitions a year that include artworks by international established and emerging artists, borrowed from a variety of sources. FLAG invites a broad range of creative individuals to curate exhibitions and works in-depth with artists to provide curatorial support and a platform to realize their own solo exhibitions.
