Photo Essay: Artist-Run

This year, Tiger Strikes Asteroid partnered with The Satellite Show, produced by Art Market Productions for art fair week in Miami this December. Their project, Artist-Run, focused “on the artist-run space, a thriving alternate model of support, exchange, and community to the established commercial market.”

Artist-Run housed an international representation of 40 such initiatives in a repurposed Miami hotel. Each room featured a different installation/environment by one of the groups, which ranged from collectives with permanent spaces to one-person pop-ups.

The project featured groups from 18 American and two European cities, “highlighting the global draw that the artist-run movement has for artists in the contemporary art world. Artist-Run’s focus on installations and environments distinguish this exhibition from the white-box displays taking place throughout Miami during the week.”
