Tiger Strikes Asteroid New York (Brooklyn, NY) is pleased to announce our open call for artists to participate in the seventh year of our annual Flat File Program. The 2020 program will run for one full year, from December 2019 through November 2020. The program is initiated with a short exhibition in our gallery in December 2019 comprised of works selected from the new season’s flat file.

Individual works from the Flat File Program will be selectively highlighted throughout the year in the gallery, on our website, through social media (Facebook/Instagram) as well as shared as part of our press releases with our mailing list; the Flat File will also be accessible to gallery visitors for browsing. Works included in the Flat File Program will be available for purchase throughout the year on our website.
