Arts Fort Worth presents DUMPTRUCK: "Playing Inside a 2015 Subaru Forester" opening reception

eventdetail
DUMPTRUCK

The arts collective DUMPTRUCK refuses to ignore the beauty in the everyday. In the instance of "Playing Inside a 2015 Subaru Forester," the artists walk viewers through the home of an early-'20s midwestern artists’ commune (a shared 3-bedroom apartment). There is life to be found in the ephemera of an artist’s space, complete with discarded cans and thoughtful messages left for each other. Guests can enjoy walking through the artists’ home, noting the vignettes the residents have left for them to admire.

The Midwest often gets pegged as being monotonous or dull. DUMPTRUCK rejects this. The region can be a comfortable and beautiful space when it is given the correct lense. There is a beautiful sense of community that is underwritten, and the collective brings light to those details. DUMPTRUCK strives for a vibrant and soft retelling of an otherwise overlooked landscape through the artists’ perspective.

DUMPTRUCK is a Cincinnati-based fiber arts collective established in 2021 by Ron Biernat and Hailey Fulford. The two artists met while attending The University of Cincinnati and have been displaying their work regionally ever since. The art collective uses found fibers to create immersive installations consisting of soft sculptures and pictorial tapestries. DUMPTRUCK emerged from the two artists’ love of the Midwest and their desire to relate their own queer experiences to the landscape that raised them.

The exhibition will remain on display through October 28.
