The FLAG Art Foundation is pleased to present A Secret Affair: Selections from the Fuhrman Family Collection, an exhibition of work from FLAG Founder Glenn Fuhrman and his wife Amanda’s collection.

The title of the exhibition, A Secret Affair, was inspired by Jim Lambie’s keyhole sculpture Secret Affair (Gold), 2007, and serves as a metaphor for the passion of collecting and the intimate relationship between the art object and its beholder. Consisting primarily of sculpture, the exhibition revolves around the figure, the close connection between two individuals, and absence.
