By Invitation Only celebrates Kinz + Tillou Fine Art's newly renovated salon exhibition space in a 1890s brownstone in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. This exhibition continues a long history of collaborating with guest curators to present fresh perspectives. For the third time, the gallery has invited colleagues to, in turn, invite artists and select works to be exhibited. The curators were encouraged to invite artists not exclusively represented, providing them with an exhibition opportunity and giving viewers an opportunity to see new and exciting works.
Invited guest curators are:
- Mickalene Thomas, world-acclaimed Brooklyn-based artist.
- Renée Riccardo, long established independent Brooklyn-based curator and ARENA Gallery proprietor.
- Andrew Gori & Ambre Kelly, artists/curators/event producers and founders of the SPRING/BREAK Art Show, an alternative curator-driven New York City art fair.
