Released in late February of this year, this title documents the first decade of programming of the FLAG Art Foundation, founded by financier, philanthropist and collector Glenn Fuhrman. FLAG's mandate is to promote the appreciation of contemporary art among a diverse audience, often by hiring non-artworld professionals to curate exhibitions. To date, more than 50 exhibitions have been mounted, with works by more than 500 artists presented. The curators have ranged from artists to athletes, writers to historians, fashion designers to museum directors, etc. etc.

The FLAG Art Foundation 2008–2018 is a fully illustrated account of these projects, with installation views of each exhibition, along with texts from people who have played key roles in FLAG’s history and interviews with Sarah Douglas, Glenn Fuhrman and Stephanie Roach.

Fuhrman will be in conversation with Lawrence Weiner at the Gagosian Shop on April 16th, between 6 and 7 pm. A book signing will follow.

The Gagosian Shop is located at 976 Madison Avenue, New York. To attend, please RSVP to
