Kieran Myles-Andrés Tverbakk

is an artist from Houston TX, currently living and working on Dakhóta land (Minneapolis-St. Paul). In their work, they highlight the dualistic nature of queer trans visibility and explore self-empowerment through the reclamation of their family's native languages and cultural practices. Using their family's archives, they reveal dichotomies within their experience as a first-generation Mexican-Norwegian-American who is also non-binary transgender. Tverbakk has exhibited nationally in galleries including Clamp Light (San Antonio TX), Sure Space (Minneapolis MN), New Women Space (Brooklyn NY), NDSU's Memorial Union Gallery (Fargo ND), Waiting Room (St. Paul MN), and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts Museum (Philadelphia PA).

Tverbakk is a current Artist Initiative Grant recipient, awarded by the Minnesota State Arts Board. They are the founder of Transparency.News and a co-founder of ACAB, A Community Arts Bandwagon.
