NEW YORK, NY.- The FLAG Art Foundation is presenti two exhibitions: Roy Lichtenstein: Intimate Sculptures, organized in cooperation with the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation, and East Side to the West Side, an exhibition featuring three Lower East Side galleries: Brennan & Griffin, James Fuentes, and Rachel Uffner.

Roy Lichtenstein: Intimate Sculptures presents a selection of the artist's sculptures and maquettes, works that playfully and pointedly blur the boundaries of drawing, sculpture, and painting. Comprised of everyday and mass-produced objects - a mirror, water glass, and coffee cup - as well as the artist's signature brushstrokes, the works highlight Lichtenstein's ability to elevate the everyday to the iconic. Presented in a gallery space populated with furniture, the exhibition encourages engagement, inviting audiences to view historic works in an intimate setting.

Concurrent with the exhibition at FLAG, Lichtenstein's monumental sculpture, Tokyo Brushstroke I & II (1994) is on view as a long term loan by the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation at the Parrish Art Museum, Southampton, NY, made possible by the Fuhrman Family Foundation.

East Side to the West Side highlights artists from the rosters of three distinctive and influential LES programs - Brennan & Griffin, James Fuentes, and Rachel Uffner - providing each gallery with its own show within a show. The artists in this exhibition represent a variety of backgrounds and creative practices. Brennan & Griffin presents Heather Guertin, Naotaka Hiro, and Dave McDermott, artists whose work examines figuration and the body, each engaging with art history while evincing a singular artistic position. James Fuentes presents a new series of paintings by Benjamin Senior and Michele Tocca that are collaborative in spirit, exploring the artists' interest in nineteenth and twentieth century French landscape painting, perception and representation, and the materiality of paint. Rachel Uffner presents a selection of gallery artists including the work of Bianca Beck, Joanne Greenbaum, Hilary Harnischfeger, Anya Kielar, Sam Moyer, and Sara Greenberger Rafferty, showcasing a myriad of formal approaches to painting and sculpture.
