A signature Artspace event, the 2018 Kansas City Flatfile & Digitalfile is the 9th 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 200 custommade artist portfolios holding an excitingly diverse range of flat works, and a screening station will feature time-based works included in the Digitalfile. Guest curators will be invited to curate salon walls and queues each month, creating a dynamic and ever-changing experience.
