Hampton Pinckney Neighborhood
Opening Reception: 6-8p July 22, 2022
Tiger Strikes Asteroid Greenville (TSA GVL) is pleased to present to the community YARDWORK 2022, an outdoor yard art exhibition featuring local and regional artists from the South hosted in the Hampton Pinckney neighborhood of Greenville, SC. Through art installations big and small, works can be seen on porches, lawns, mailboxes, walkways, and exterior walls: the iconography of the neighborhood. YARDWORK began in 2020 as a response to pandemic quarantine measures, with yard art installations acting as a point of community engagement and social responsibility.
YARDWORK 2022 is themed around “gather”, with invited artists exploring the nuances of how society comes together today in light of the shifts we’ve experienced over the past two years. Some of the work on display asks viewers to consider public and private spaces as avenues to meet. Other works reframe greenspace as a canvas for playful accumulations. These site-specific interventions effuse art throughout Hampton Pinckney, integrating creative works into everyday spaces in accessible and often unexpected ways.
Neighborhood residents and business owners are not just hosts - some serve as collaborators with artists in creating site-specific art installations across multiple mediums. With over 13 participating locations, the exhibition is hosted on a range of homes and businesses that represent a breadth of histories significant to the neighborhood.
In conjunction with this exhibition, TSA GVL presents a variety of programming: Screen Porch, a video art screening on August 19 at The Commons and Clay Date, a children’s sculpture workshop in August.
