Related Tactics

Weston Teruya is an artist and cultural producer who moves between individual and collective modes of practice to explore personal and community responses to inequity and fragmentation, with listening and inquiry as the starting point for creative reflection and making. Teruya’s collaborative projects are often more outwardly discursive, utilizing a mixture of curatorial tactics, engagement, and direct address, while in his individual work he draws on the interplay of research and material exploration to create sculptural installations—often from a variety of paper-based media. Teruya has exhibited at the Mills College Art Museum, University of Hawaiʻi Mānoa, and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. He has received public art commissions for the San Francisco and Alameda County Arts Commissions, and grants from Artadia, Asian Cultural Council, and Creative Work Fund. Residencies include A. Farm Saigon, Montalvo Arts Center, Ox-Bow, and Recology SF. He is one-third of Related Tactics, a collective of artists of color who create projects at the intersection of race and culture. The collective’s projects have been presented through the University of San Francisco Thacher Gallery, Wexner Center for the Arts, and Kala Art Institute’s Print Public; and they were awarded a 2021 Craft Research Fund Artist Fellowship.
