Hi Tiger is a group of performing and visual artists, music producers and instrumentalists. Performances are directed by Derek Jackson (vocals / art direction) and have included fierceness by Amandaconda & Nicole Antonette, and sculpture by PSBL. Hi Tiger performs live vocals and choreography with musical accompaniment produced by a growing roster of beat makers and musicians.
A 2017 and 2019 recipient of the Kindling Fund through SPACE Gallery, Hi Tiger has been featured in performances at Institute of Contemporary Art (Portland, Maine) for the exhibition Tinderbox, Brooklyn Academy of Music for EVERYBOOTY / NYC, LePetit Versailles (for the exhibition NOT OVER: 25 years of Visual AIDS), Spectrum (New York), and Portland Pride (Maine).
In March 2018, Hi Tiger created Maine Center for Electronic Music as a multi-media installation with community programs. The piece inhabits the former Maine International Trade Center at 511 Congress street in Portland, Maine through summer 2019 when it tours to community, cultural and educational spaces.
