KINGS Artist-Run FLASHnights

KINGS FLASHnights are free, one night events whereby the entire gallery of KINGS Artist-Run is available for artists, writers and performers to present experimental, one-off projects. KINGS encourages expressions of interest for events that include: talks, performances, readings, relational events, screenings, workshops, happenings and to test projects in development. KINGS FLASHnights is a way for KINGS Artist-Run to host experimental events that do not necessarily require a traditional exhibition duration, and as a way for KINGS to offer free opportunities to artists and creatives through alternative approaches to programming.
