"Both And" Artist Talk
Join Tiger Strikes Asteroid Chicago for a program presented held in conjunction with the exhibition "Both And", which will be on view in the gallery from Saturday, October 30–Saturday, December 11. Organized by artist and TSA CHI member Nicole Mauser, "Both And" will feature 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 curator Jordan Stein will provide an overview of Ito’s life and work followed by a discussion between Mauser and the artists about the relationship between abstraction and representation in their work.

Both And will be on view at Tiger Strikes Asteroid’s Chicago location at Mana Contemporary, 2233 S. Throop St #419. The gallery is open Saturdays, 12pm-4pm appointments are encouraged but drop-ins welcome: https://calendly.com/tiger-strikes-asteroid-chicago/exhibition-viewing-appointment-1?month=2021-09

"Both And" is presented as part of Art Design Chicago Now, an initiative funded by the Terra Foundation for American Art that amplifies the voices of Chicago's diverse creatives, past and present, and explores the essential role they play in shaping the now.
