Tiger Strikes Asteroid Chicago is pleased to present Flat File One opening in conjunction with The Chicago Print Crawl on Sunday, June 24 from 12-6pm at 319 North Albany for an exhibition celebrating this year’s Flat File program. Flat File One is an exhibition marking the end of the year of TSA Chicago’s first flat file cohort. The 17 selected artists represent an array of approaches towards flat media– including drawing, collage, printmaking, and photography, among others. In many cases the selected works are emblematic of an artist’s core practice, while for some this work represents a thought process beyond their larger body of work.
During this exhibition and throughout the year, visitors are welcome to browse and acquire artworks from the flat file. Additionally all works can be viewed on our website (http://www.tigerstrikesasteroid.com/flatfile-chi). A catalog highlighting all Flat File One artists will be available for purchase. Flat File One was organized by our TSA interns: Kate Anderson, Laura Guadagnino, and Erol Scott Harris II.
TSA Chicago has been honored to work with these Flat File One artists over the last year: Alberto Aguilar, Mark Brosseau, Meg Duguid, Stano Grezdo, Daniel Hojnacki, Brian Kapernekas, David X Levine, Jessie Mott, Garry Noland, Allison Reimus, Kayla Risko, Nina Rizzo, Rosalyn Schwartz, Peter Skvara, Nicholas Steindorf, Selina Trepp, and Jonathan Miller.
Stay tuned for an announcement and call for Flat File Two.
Our reception hours will be extended for Flat File One until 6:00 p.m. to coincide with the Chicago Print Crawl, which is a free event open to the public. The Chicago Print Crawl is an annual, self-guided tour of printmaking production, publishing, exhibition and sales venues throughout the City of Chicago, organized by Spudnik Press Cooperative.
