Tiger Strikes Asteroid Open Call: Where Are You Now?

Tiger Strikes Asteroid Open Call: Where Are You Now?

This Deadline Expired: Monday, February 22, 2021

Deadline: February 22, 2021 Fee (USD): $20.00

We find ourselves in a time that tasks us to re-imagine our established rituals and relationship to “work.” New parameters on where and how we can be physically have demanded rapid adaptation from artists. TSA Philadelphia is curious about where (and how) you have ended up, within your work and within your work-space. This year, TSA Philadelphia’s Open Call is multidimensional, extending beyond an in-person exhibition into the realm of digital and print. They are offering a platform to share your work not only as an object, but as an extension of your physical space and state of mind. They are interested in the flux of your practice within this ever-changing reality, and how it has manifested in your studio.

Ten selected artists will have their artwork included in a group exhibition at TSA Philadelphia, an online exhibition on their website, featured on their social media, and a mailable printed periodical. Selected artists will be asked to document — a video, a recording, an audio clip, a piece of writing — the site or situation of their practice. Whether this is a formal studio space you have been working in for years, or if the last year has bumped you into the kitchen to make your art, they want to celebrate your perseverance. This is an opportunity to invite viewers into your process in whatever way you feel appropriate.
