deadWEST is an exhibition of artists working in a variety of media that takes place in Winter Rusiloski and Angel Fernandez’s studio.

deadWEST was conceived as an alternative artist space in North Texas, with a location that is due west of the Dallas and Fort Worth Cultural Districts. Rusiloski is a transplant of the Northeastern United States to Fort Worth, and Fernandez is a transplant of Mexico to Fort Worth, to the Northeast and back to Fort Worth. This is their first curatorial collaboration where numerous themes percolate throughout the selection of artists; the dominant two are Place and Identity.

Several artists in this collection reference Place as a physical environment while others use that physical space as a foundation to construct material responses shaped by individual aesthetic sensibilities. The remaining participants address a psychological Place that is a function of Identity and vice versa. Geographic location, social matrices and personal histories are factors that form the Identity that deadWEST artists explore.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through December 11.
