More about the exhibition:
Spaghetti Midwestern is a cityscape installation meant to remind the viewer of the types of skylines and highway memorabilia found in middle America. The work will be a combination of a site-specific installation where the artists will drape fibers on the wall to create city-like structures and rolling hills. The other half of the work will include a tapestry meant to be a lovingly rendered portrait of a city of the artists’ creation.
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. Their collective uses found fibers to create immersive installations consisting of soft sculptures and pictorial tapestries. The artists are creating cityscapes from their own perspectives, in order to highlight the joys that come from living in middle America. 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.
