FLATFILES (May 23, 2012)

I am thrilled to be participating in the 2012 Kansas City Flatfiles exhibition at H&R Block Artspace. This invitational biennial exhibition provides visitors with a unique and intimate art viewing experience, encouraging viewers to browse through individual artist portfolios stored within flatfile cabinets, or select video works to screen in the “Videofile.” June 2 – September 29, 2012.


I will be participating in, Neutral Space, a group exhibition opening June 1st, 2012, at Spray Booth Gallery. Check out the exhibition essay here. It seems author, Neil Thurn, is throwing down the gauntlet for Kansas City, “We need to engage ideologically with and against our peers and do so more actively than Halley has… Otherwise we will be stuck making neutral spaces, work that is ideologically empty and without consequence, while drinking free alcohol and half-heartedly congratulating each other. Artists need to re-engage with ideology and therefore each other. And this is true for not only geometric artists but all artists in general.” Hope to see you to the opening, 6pm-10pm.


Kansas City had the pleasure of hosting writers and editors from the San Francisco-based online publication Art Practical. You can listen to some fantastic interviews between AP and Plug Projects, an artist-run gallery, on Bad At Sports. Through this exchange, I also wrote and published a “Shotgun Review” for Art Practical online: Subterranean Gallery’s Hot Tub Dialogues.
