Join us for the 3rd instalment of the Guest Lecture Series, organized by students of Art Studies 143 (Contemporary Art), a course being offered by the Department of Art Studies, University of the Philippines Diliman.

Our speaker for this session is Mark Salvatus, an intermedia artist who lives and works in Manila. Working across various disciplines and media, Salvatus’ works have been presented in different exhibitions and venues including, among many others, the the 2nd Lahore Biennale (2020);  the Sharjah Biennale (2019); the Gwangju Biennale (2018), the Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin (2016-2017); Philippine Pavilion, Venice Architecture Biennale (2016); SONSBEEK International, Arnhem, Netherlands (2016); 3rd Singapore Biennale (2011), 4th Guangzhou Triennale (2011), Jakarta Biennale (2011 & 2015), and the Honolulu Biennale (2014). 

He had residencies in Asia Culture Center (ACC) Gwangju, South Korea, Rijksakademie, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, IASPIS Umea, Sweden; Art OMI, New York, Koganecho, Yokohama and Goyang Art Studio in South Korea. Recently, Salvatus was a visiting artist at University of Colorado Boulder, Art and Art History Department.

Salvatus also organized a wide range of artist-run projects, among them LOAD NA DITO, an artistic and research initiative he co-founded in 2016 with curator Mayumi Hirano. Currently based in Quezon City, Load na Dito hopes to critically address questions on participation, collaboration, and curation in relation to practices and forms of producing and presenting contemporary art.
