About Tiger Strikes Asteroid
Strikes Asteroid is a network of artist-run spaces with locations in
Philadelphia, New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. Each space is
independently operated and focuses on presenting a varied program of
emerging and mid-career artists. TSA's goal is to collectively bring
people together, expand connections and build community through
artist-initiated exhibitions, projects, and curatorial opportunities.
They seek to further empower the artist’s role beyond that of studio
practitioner to include the roles of curator, critic, and community
developer; and to act as an alternate model to the conventions of the
current commercial art market.
TSA’s exhibitions and projects have been featured in numerous print and online publications including The New York Times, The Chicago Times, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Hyperallergic, Art F City, The Huffington Post, L Magazine, Whitehot Magazine, Two Coats of Paint, Artinfo, Artnet News, Beautiful Decay, and the artblog.
