Caroline Santa, "Coda" written up on The Art Blog

Tiger Strikes Asteroid member Caroline Santa received a great review of her show "Coda" on The Art Blog.  Julian Phillips writes, "The artist’s previous work shows an affinity towards use of strong color and shape, which “Coda” echoes but reinvents. Coda draws with materials and takes a look at the process of art making, one step of at a time. Santa’s ideas and approach make refreshing new pathways to consider."

 Come see this "invigorating look at the creative process" Saturday and Sunday from 2-6pm before it comes down Sunday, May 28th. The weather is great, so come on out! Tiger Strikes Asteroid is located on the second floor of 319A N. 11th St, Philadelphia.

Get on the Block Opens Friday, May 13th

"Get on the Block", a show featuring Julianne Ahn, Matt Phillips, Travis LeRoy Southworth, Liz Zanis, TSA member Alex Paik  , is opening this Friday at Camel Art Space in Brooklyn. The show, curated by Lauren van Haaften-Schick "explores social and self-conscious motivations and anxieties surrounding art production and display. Through sincere humor, humility and coy absurdity, these artists confront what critic Jan Verwoert has termed "the pressure to perform," the expectation that artists and cultural producers present only absolute, correct assertions with the "genius-like" promise of positive results. In contrast, these works offer open-ended proposals or temporary conclusions, rendering suspect the desire and criteria for defining success or failure."

The opening reception is Friday, May 13th from 6-9pm. The show is up until June 13th.
