Spinneret | April 12-July 21, 2024

Ogunquit Museum of American Art’s opening exhibition in 2024 is Anthony Cudahy’s Spinneret, marking his first solo exhibition in the United States. Spanning the last half-decade of his career, this survey of more than 30 significant paintings—including brand-new work—will explore Cudahy’s richly layered practice. His figurative paintings piece together enigmatic scenes of specific objects and equi­vocal environments from interwoven references drawn from Queer archives, art history, film, poetry, friends, and his own autobiography.
