Anthony Cudahy | and I will wear you in my heart of heart | The FLAG Art Foundation

May 1, 2021

Hales is pleased to announce the inclusion of Anthony Cudahy in the group exhibition and I will wear you in my heart of heart at the FLAG Art Foundation, NY, USA.

The group exhibition of contemporary paintings and textiles will be on view from May 1 - August 13, 2021, on its 9th floor. Centering on a gesture of care, the exhibition explores the myriad ways in which artists evoke tenderness though depictions of lovers and friends, familial exchanges, moments of solitude, and even a cowboy and his pastel pink unicorn. Heart of heart includes recent and new works created for the exhibition that embody the cross-generational resurgence in figurative painting as a mode of exploring identity, cultural histories, and personal experiences.

Heart of heart nods to line spoken by Hamlet and addresses that which we hold closest, be it a relationship, a feeling, one’s own well-being, an object, or a dream. Illustratively, the “heart of heart” is akin to a castle’s keep, an innermost stronghold and safeguard from the outside world.
