Nick Larsen is an artist living in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He studied at the University of Nevada, Reno, and the Ohio State University, where he received his MFA in Sculpture. Larsen has had over a dozen solo and collaborative exhibitions and been a part of a number of notable group exhibitions, including Tilting the Basin, a survey of contemporary art in Nevada (Nevada Museum of Art, 2015/2016), and several editions of New American Paintings (NAP #131#135#143#155). In 2019, he self-published a book of images, drawings, and writing that straddled the line between autobiography and fictionalized archeological inventory of Queer Mountain, a real though poorly documented desert wilderness in western Nevada.

Kara Güt is a multidisciplinary artist whose primary focus is image-based, digital media. Her work investigates the new shape of human intimacy formed by internet lifestyle, constructed detachment from reality, and the power dynamics of the virtual. Recent projects include ‘Welcome to my Desert Nexus’ – a three-act play performed within the video game Red Dead Redemption. Part table-read, part live gaming event, this project combined the aesthetic languages of the theater and the video game.
