A Q&A with Edward Winkleman and
FLAG Founder Glenn Fuhrman starts at 7pm.
Selling Contemporary Art: How to Navigate the Evolving Market comprises an analysis of the contemporary art market from a dealer’s point of view and discusses strategies that art dealers are using to navigate the challenges rising in the market since Winkleman’s first book (How to Start and Run a Commercial Art Gallery, 2009). Based on 18 months of research and in-depth interviews with a range of powerful movers and shakers in the art market (including Glenn Fuhrman), Selling Contemporary Art is designed to spark a dialog about how best to serve artists and collectors in a rapidly evolving landscape.
Currently on view at FLAG:
El Anatsui, Mark Bradford, Kadar Brock, Cecily Brown, Sarah Crowner, Sam Gilliam, Sterling Ruby, Sean Scully, Ryan Sullivan, Lesley Vance, Rebecca Ward, Garth Weiser
Surface Tension features twelve artists whose approach to abstraction incorporates a range of materials, processes, and techniques – such as sanding, stitching, dying, and layering – to draw attention to the dynamic potential of a painting’s surface.
New Flower | Images of the Reclining Venus is a solo exhibition of photographs shot by Awol Erizku in Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa in 2013. The images challenge the art historical role of the Venus and the odalisque in Western painting, setting these tropes against the reality of one of the largest concentrations of sex workers in Africa.
A ‘Conceptual Mixtape’ by Erizku, produced in collaboration with Los Angeles-based DJ SOSUPERSAM, plays throughout the exhibition and features music and soundbites from Kerry James Marshall’s “Elson Lecture: Kerry James Marshall: The Importance of Being Figurative” at the National Gallery of Art.
