Tiger Strikes Asteroid Chicago is thrilled to present Both And featuring nuanced abstract paintings by Chicago-based artist Miyoko Ito (1918-1983), alongside contemporary sculptures and paintings by Alex Chitty, Julia Fish, Avery Z. Nelson, and Brittney Leeanne Williams. Each artwork is powerful in its ambiguity, containing contradictions in terms of spatial illusion and reference(s) which obliterate any supposed binary between “abstraction” and “representation.” By situating Ito’s work in relation to that of the artists working today, the exhibition opens up a dialogue around abstraction that calls attention to distinctive engagements with color, space, timelessness, and form.
We are thrilled to announce an exhibition archive website BothAnd.Art
