PHILADELPHIA: Tiger Strikes Asteroid is pleased to announce the opening of our May exhibition, Studies & Specimens, featuring work by TSA member Nora Salzman. This exhibition is Nora Salzmans first solo show with the gallery.
In Studies & Specimens, Salzman presents a single display cabinet. Building on her interest in the mechanisms of art and museum display, Salzman inverts her usual artistic process by making the display cabinet her point of departure rather than the creation of the art object. This inversion makes the display a speculative element internal to the art process that ultimately dictates what will be made to fit within. Accordingly, art making itself is recast through a consideration of that which is generally conceived to be a subsequent curatorial decision.
