Brooklyn, NY – Tiger Strikes Asteroid New York is pleased to present an exhibition launching our 2018 Flat File program. Chosen from an open call that attracted a diverse range of artists, the 37 selected represent an array of approaches towards flat media: drawing, collage, printmaking, and photography. In many cases the selected works are emblematic of an artist’s core practice, while for some this work represents a departure from a larger body of work. The small-scale format presented in our program presents an elastic site for play and exploration.
During this exhibition, and throughout the year visitors are welcome to browse and acquire artworks from the flat file. Individual pieces from the program will be selectively highlighted throughout the year. All works can be viewed on our website and a catalog highlighting all artists in the 2018 program is available for purchase on our website and through MagCloud.

Life on the sea has captivated the collective consciousness of land dwellers—we go there to seek freedom, respite, peace and thrill, to unplug, practice mindfulness and drift into memories of childhood. Yet the water has always been a highly sought after and contested territory, a site of violence, failed experimentation, economic competition, and the unknown. This exhibition pulls from the Artspace Flatfile to explore how artists address these dualities today, constituting a show full of trips, which play out like a deliberately difficult tongue twister.
