Opening Reception: Saturday, August 4th, 7 - 10 PM

Tiger Strikes Asteroid Los Angeles is excited to announce Mnēmonikos¹, an exhibition featuring works by Theresa Daddezio, Scout Dunbar, Leah Guadagnoli, Meredith Hoffheins, Clinton King, Elisa Lendvay, Kristy Luck, Andrew Moller, Scott Robinson, Jonathan Ryan, Sarah Tortora, Austin Williams, Jake Ziemann and curated by member and artist Esther Ruiz. 

Mnēmonikos is an exhibition that explores the fine line between the clarity and obscurity surrounding memory and its visualization though a variety of mediums including, painting, sculpture, and sound. 

¹ The word "mnemonic" is derived from the Ancient Greek word μνημονικός (mnēmonikos) meaning "of or relating to memory”. Mnemonics was often considered in the context of what is today known as the art of memory. The art of memory (Latin: ars memoriae) is any of a number of loosely associated mnemonic principles and techniques used to organize memory impressions, improve recall, and assist in the combination and 'invention' of ideas. Techniques commonly employed in the art include the association of emotionally striking memory images within visualized locations. All of these techniques were used in combination with the study of architecture, sculpture and painting, which were seen by practitioners of the art of memory as externalizations of internal memory images and organization.
