• Mission
    • 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.
    • FLAG’s innovative approach to foster dialogue around contemporary art includes producing artist talks, artist-led workshops, and exhibition tours for school and museum groups. Based in the heart of Manhattan’s Chelsea art district, FLAG and all of its related program are free and open to the public.
    • FLAG also facilitates loans of contemporary artworks to museum and galleries around the world, with an extensive database of works maintained and available to curators.

    • Frequently Asked Questions
      • Does The FLAG Art Foundation have a permanent collection?
        No. The FLAG Art Foundation operates in the spirit of a Kunsthalle, in which our curators select and borrow work from a variety of sources, including artists, private collections, galleries, and museums.

        Is the art in your exhibitions for sale?

        No. The FLAG Art Foundation is a non-profit exhibition space, not a commercial gallery. Our objective is to provide a venue in which visitors can view, contemplate, and be inspired by a wide range of contemporary artworks.

        I am a curator. Can I curate a show?

        I am an artist and would like to show my work at FLAG. Is this possible?

        FLAG’s schedule is set far in advance and we do not typically select and/or review outside submissions. However, if you feel your particular project is worth consideration, please send a brief description and contact information to info@flagartfoundation.org
