Tiger Strikes Asteroid Greenville is excited to present our 2024 Open Call winner, Ming Ying Hong, in a solo exhibition, On the Edge of... The exhibition features several large-scale drawings that transform our gallery space into an immersive experience that explores the perspectives of Chinese assimilation in the American South. As an artist identifying through multitudes: Chinese, a Southerner, an American, and an immigrant, Hong employs large self-portraiture to amplify the convergence of social identities experienced across the Chinese Diaspora. Fractured representations of self are embodied alongside iconography synonymous with Chinese identity: double fish, dragon statues of Chinatowns, meandering patterns of serving dishes, and more. Hong employs these symbols as artifacts of colonization and globalization, reflecting the complexities of assimilation: how does one blend in with a dominant culture, while embracing the origins of one’s heritage?

Tiger Strikes Asteroid Greenville is an artist-run gallery space located in Hampton Station (Bay 6, #601). Our goal is to collectively bring people together, expand connections, and create community through artist-initiated exhibitions, projects, and curatorial opportunities.

Gallery Hours are Saturdays 12-4pm and by appointment. Please email us for an appointment request or other questions.
