Here are a few highlights from our four spaces over the past few years! Enjoy!
Extension or Communication: Puerto Rico
January 11 - February 17, 2018
This, a research project by TSA member Ricky Yanas and artists/organizers Grimaldi Baez and Sheldon Abba exploring the potential of transformative pedagogical spaces in Philadelphia and beyond, is the first stage in a larger collaborative effort, will highlight emancipatory projects that have emerged in Puerto Rico in the aftermath of hurricane Maria.
June 30 - July 22, 2018
ReVerb, an exhibition featuring works by artists Clint Campbell, Maureen Keaveny, Nick Rodrigues, and Peter Segersbtrom and curated by TSA LA member Kari Reardon. Reverb is a limitless effect of a reflection on space. Signals, technological or natural, constantly move through and around us. Existing in the build up and then decay, reverberations become absorbed by the objects and surfaces they encounter. ReVerbis an exhibition that explores the intersection between nature and technology through a variety of mediums including poetry, sculpture, photography, and electronic music.
Didier William: We Will Win
October 20 - November 19, 2017
Didier William’s mixed media paintings are at once highly calibrated and consciously oblique. His coy yet complex narratives unfurl to offer multiple histories, those fixed and fluid, rigid and supple, diasporic and rooted.
Sashay With and Without History
June 4 - July 15, 2017
Curated by Zachary + Holly Cahill, featuring the work of Sara Black and Amber Ginsburg, Pierre Huyghe, Nabiha Khan-Giordano, Matt Morris, and Silke Otto-Knapp.
A Body Has No Center, curated by Ricky Yanas
September 2 - October 16, 2016
A multi-site series of exhibitions curated by artist Ricky Yanas, featuring works by an expanding list of writers, poets, musicians, activists, intellectuals, educators, visual artists, craftspersons, and non-artists.
Repeater, curated by Kelsey Halliday Johnson
Lee Arnold, Mark Brosseau, Meg Lipke
Apr 1 - May 1, 2016
The show brings together three artists who have used a secondary or tertiary medium in the studio to prompt new tensions and dialogues within their work. United by certain graphic qualities – patterns, grids, bold geometries and blocks of color – Repeater aims to create a playful installation between their works while examining the three artists’ novel generative and conceptual engines for employing these formal devices.
Fragmented Gaze, curated by Loren Britton
Lauren Faigeles, Alice Lang, Adam Novak, Paul Mpagi Sepuya
July 9 - 30th, 2016
Through fragmenting the body, through the window onto the world, through the phone, through the rectangle, through digital means; the framework of the crop enters. In the crop. At the joint; a leg or a hand, the artist implicates their viewer. In this moment of constant digital self-fragmentation are we still implicated?
Drawing for Sculpture, curated by Courtney Puckett
January 8 – February 14, 2016
Tiger Strikes Asteroid New York is pleased to announce the opening of its first exhibition of 2016, Drawing for Sculpture, a survey of drawings by forty-one sculptors.
Made in USA / Some Parts Imported, curated by Naomi Reis with Heidi Lau
July 3 - August 9, 2015
Grounded in a celebration of technique and a strong understanding of materials, this group of artists distills disparate cultural influences in the objecthood of the work itself, combining impossible geographies into a singular entity: the eye of a storm around which swirl questions of identity, formalism, and beauty.
Curated by Caroline Santa and Rachael Gorchov
June 28 – August 4, 2013
Featuring works by Annie Attridge, James Hyde, Joanne Greenbaum, Jane Irish, Essye Klempner and Heidi Lau.
Solid Pull is an exhibition of contemporary ceramics whose entry point is the practice of painting. Much like paint, clay is an immediate and flexible medium – it allows artists to realize their vision in a visceral, tactile manner. Clay can function as “all paint and no support” – the dimensionality of the medium allows for a form of searching that isn’t present in two-dimensional media. The consummation of the maker and the material through the physical building of layers is spatial image-making at its most fundamental.
