2018 Kansas City Flatfile and Digitalfile06/08/2018 - 09/29/2018
A signature Artspace event, the 2018 Kansas City Flatfile & Digitalfile is the ninth project in this popular biennial series. The Flatfile offers a uniquely intimate art viewing experience and a chance to discover new works by emerging and established Kansas City-based artists. Art lovers are invited to peruse flatfile cabinets filled with over 230 custom-made artist portfolios holding an excitingly diverse range of flat works, and a screening station featuring time-based works included in the Digitalfile. Guest curators are invited to curate salon walls and video queues each month, creating a dynamic and ever-changing experience.

The first Kansas City Flatfile exhibition was held at the Artspace in 2001 in conjunction with the Pierogi Flatfiles exhibition featuring flatfiles from Joe Amrhein’s Pierogi Gallery in Brooklyn, N.Y. The Kansas City Flatfile has since become a biennial invitational exhibition featuring a wide range of work by emerging and established artists from the Kansas City area.
