Tiger Strikes Asteroid New York (Brooklyn, NY) is excited to announce their 2023 open call for one Solo Exhibition artist and one STAR (Short Term Artist in Residency) recipient.

The solo exhibition will run from July 19, 2024 to August 18, 2024. The exhibition will include a $1,000 reimbursable exhibition budget and professional installation shots. Submissions will be reviewed by TSA NY members. They will prioritize underrepresented artists, works that uniquely activate the space, and works that are not viable in traditional commercial markets. They encourage artists from all educational backgrounds to apply, and we are excited to see work from artists based across the United States and internationally. The artist chosen for the solo exhibition will work closely with a team of curators at TSA NY to prepare for their show.

The STAR residency program will be held in the TSA NY gallery space, from November 27, 2023 to December 27, 2023. The resident artist will have access to a semi-private gallery space for the term of the residency. This residency comes with a $1000 reimbursable production budget. Time in the space can be used for production, rehearsal, or studio development. Please review their Instagram (@tsa_ny, #TSANYSTAR) for work done during past STAR residencies, for an idea of what can be accomplished in this space/time. The floor plan for their space can be found here:

Please note: They do not provide housing for the STAR residency; if you are not based in NYC, then you are responsible for securing a living space for the duration of your residency.

Selection process: This year, they will be introducing a new selection format. From the pool of applicants, TSA NY members will select 10 semi-finalists. From those 10, 5 artists will receive Zoom studio visits from our members. From this group of 5 finalists, the solo show recipient and STAR resident will be selected.
