Artists Talk: "Both And"

Join Tiger Strikes Asteroid (TSA) for a program held in conjunction with the exhibition Both And, on view at the gallery October 30 - December 11. Organized by artist and TSA CHI member Nicole Mauser, Both And features paintings by Chicago-based artist Miyoko Ito (1918-1983), who was known for her nuanced abstractions, alongside contemporary works by Alex Chitty, Julia Fish, Avery Z. Nelson, and Brittney Leeanne Williams that also engage with abstraction. San Francisco-based independent curator Jordan Stein provides an overview of Ito’s work and life followed by a discussion between Mauser and the artists about how abstraction and representation inform one another in their work.

Both And is on view at Tiger Strikes Asteroid’s Chicago location at Mana Contemporary, 2233 South Throop Street, #419. The gallery is open on Saturdays. Appointments are encouraged.
