Tiger Strikes Asteroid Chicago is pleased to announce a solo exhibition by Chicago artist Olivia Schreiner entitled Nascent Things.
This exhibition of paintings and drawings reflects Schreiner’s observations of particular light effects in her daily surroundings. In this new body of work, she presents instances when light is emerging from darkness. For Schreiner the contrast that occurs in these transitions is not only visually captivating but also serves as a useful metaphor for the dark and dumbfounding times we find ourselves in.
Olivia Schreiner has exhibited nationally and internationally. Her work has been shown in Chicagoland at the Block Museum, Cleve Carney Art Gallery, Hyde Park Art Center and Skestos Gabrielle Gallery. She has worked as a project technician at the Fabric Workshop and Museum and is a former member of the Philadelphia artist cooperative Vox Populi. Schreiner received her BFA from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design and her MFA from Northwestern University. She is currently a member of Tiger Strikes Asteroid Chicago and Resident Artist at Compound Yellow in Oak Park.
606 Records will DJ the opening reception.

Tiger Strikes Asteroid is a network of artist-run spaces with locations in Philadelphia, New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. Each space is independently operated and focuses on presenting a varied program of emerging and mid-career artists. Our goal is to collectively bring people together, expand connections and build community through artist-initiated exhibitions, projects, and curatorial opportunities. We seek to further empower the artist’s role beyond that of studio practitioner to include the roles of curator, critic, and community developer; and to act as an alternate model to the conventions of the current commercial art market.
