Yes, it's possible. I'm running Guix on foreign distro (Manjaro ARM). See the 
console output.

You can get the image for the board here [1].
Also in the latest blog post [2] the dedicate section to Quartz64:

    Linux 5.15 brings Quartz64 device tree
    Quartz64 now outputs video via HDMI at 1080p 60hz for now; audio out via 
SPDIF also works out of the box
    GPU works using the Panforst open driver
    Tianocore EDK II implemented and allows for full UEFI

I can tell the board now boots and the Sway session over HDMI works. Before a 
month ago I was only able to get SSH connection.

Please follow the instructions in section on installing Guix [3].

Not sure how difficult it would be to run full Guix System there atm. Currently 
I focus more on the PinePhone and Pinebook Pro.
