Georden West (pronouns: they, them) is a time-based artist. They approach material and sartorial culture as inherently queer, using media and installation to evolve visualization of erased LGBTQ+ histories as they relate to the symbolic dimension of social objects. 
Georden won gold in the Alternative/Experimental category at the 2019 Student Academy Awards, qualifying for an Oscar for Live Action Short. Their films featuring the designs of longtime collaborator Jamall Osterholm have screened in museums and at festivals around the world.
Georden was an Emerson Fellow, receiving their MFA from Emerson College. They are a member of the BLAA (Boston LGBTQIA+ Artist Alliance) collective and of Starlight Entertainment's Stars Collective. They currently reside in Provincetown where they are a visual arts fellow at the Fine Arts Work Center.
