Garry Noland: The Most Beautifulest Thing In The World…
April 22– May 27, 2017
Reception: Saturday, April 22, 1– 4pm
(Artist Talk 2-3pm)
Tiger Strikes Asteroid Chicago is pleased to present The Most Beautifulest Thing In The World…featuring the work of Garry Noland.
This exhibition assembles works from Noland’s studio to explore the presence of edges or boundaries between mistakes to establish immediate contextual and formal relationships. By collaborating with his media in a push and pull process, he articulates the interstitial spaces between material abutments. These abutments are then allowed to mimic our interaction with art and each other. Noland’s work is steeped in the familiar while seeking to find the mundane in the grand and the grand in the mundane.
Also, with this second solo exhibition of 2017, Tiger Strikes Asteroid continues to set the groundwork for artists to act as an alternate model to established conventions, to expand artists’ roles beyond the solitary studio, and solidify a geographic relationship between West, East, and Midwest. This exhibition is curated by TSA Chicago member Esau McGhee.
