The institution's press release follows:
The FLAG Art Foundation presents and I will wear you in my heart of heart, a group exhibition of contemporary painting and textiles, on view May 1–August 14, 2021, on its 9th floor. Centering on a gesture of care, the exhibition examines the myriad ways in which contemporary painters evoke tenderness through scenes of lovers and friends, familial exchanges, moments of solitude, and even a cowboy and his pastel pink unicorn. The exhibition includes new and recent works that embody the cross-generational resurgence in figurative painting as a mode of exploring identity, cultural histories, and personal experiences.
