THE MUSEUM OF QUEER CURIOSITIES
Our own Feliks RK Pyron (he/they) is a queer, non-binary artist currently operating out of Pittsburgh, PA. Originally from Corpus Christi, Texas, on the Gulf Coast of Mexico, Feliksspent every birthday until they were 23 going to the local science museum. In 2016, they got their Bachelor of Fine Arts from Texas A&M Corpus Christi, focusing in both ceramics and printmaking as a means of alternatively thinking about the value of illustration and communication. They swiftly moved to Morgantown, West Virginia, to work with Joseph Lupo, and in 2020 received their Master’s in Fine Art from West Virginia University.
Right now Feliks is working on The Museum of Queer Curiosities, a conglomeration of manufactured ‘artifacts’ and their dressings to create the simulation of a museum to talk about confusion, authority, and trust.
