Mana Contemporary Chicago
Tiger Strikes Asteroid: It feels like the first time is the first-ever, largest, and most comprehensive survey show that brings together the exhibition’s namesake network of artist-run spaces in Philadelphia, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Greenville, SC. Curated by Teresa Silva and Holly Cahill, two of the cooperative’s own members in Chicago, the exhibition includes nearly 50 of their peers with works inside Mana Contemporary’s main gallery. InLiquid artists Mary Henderson and Terri Saulin are featured in this exhibition!
It feels like the first time is a watershed moment; it’s the first and most inclusive exhibition showcasing works by Tiger Strikes Asteroid members together, a constellation of conversations that delve into one’s sensorial experiences. Both sprawling and specific, the show’s framework slips into preoccupations with material memory and collections, the uncanny, touch and personal space, meditative gestures, existing power structures and belief systems. This framework of ideas is unsettled and shifting like the world itself.
