Step Inside of This Unique Art Viewing, Right Here in Kansas City

A signature H&R Block Artspace event, the 2018 Kansas City Flatfile & Digital File 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 200 custom-made artist portfolios holding an excitingly diverse range of flat works, and a screening station will feature time-based works included in the Digital File.

Guest curators will be invited to curate salon walls and queues each month, creating a dynamic and ever-changing experience. The 2018 Kansas City Flatfile & Digital File is a part of Open Spaces Expanded Field, and will feature over 200 regional artists, with several Open Spaces artists including: Shawn Bitters, Martin Cail, Jill Downen, Rashawn Griffin, Tanya Hartman, Trey Hock, Anthony Marcos Rea, Karen McCoy, and more.

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. We hope that you stop by to see this wonderful exhibit!
