Lanz Kinz and Michelle Tillou, the duo behind the gallery Kinz + Tillou, know the power of exclusivity. That’s why they decided to inaugurate their newly renovated Brooklyn space with a group exhibition titled “By Invitation Only.” “If it seemed that it was ‘by invitation only,’ everyone would want to come,” explains Kinz.
For the show, curator Renée Riccardo, artist Mickalene Thomas, and Spring/Break art fair founders Ambre Kelly and Andrew Gori were asked to showcase the work of talented up-and-comers who lack gallery representation. The opening event packed the gallery’s Brooklyn brownstone with artists, curators, writers and collectors—several of whom purchased the still-affordable pieces.

“By Invitation Only“ is on display through July 12 at Kinz + Tillou, 59 Cambridge Place, Brooklyn.
