Laura is again participating in the "2018 Kansas City Flat File" which opens Friday, June 8th at the H&R Bloch Artspace in Kansas City, MO. This interactive exhibition will be open to the public through September 29th. 

A signature Artspace event, the "2018 Kansas City Flat File & Digital File" 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 custom-made 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. Guest curators for June will be Hesse McGraw, principal at el dorado inc. and Alex Priest, public engagement, marketing, and curatorial at el dorado inc.

The first Kansas City Flatfile exhibition was held at the Artspace in 2001 in conjunction with the Pierogi Flatfilesexhibition 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.
