UP Vargas Museum, in cooperation with The Drawing Room (Contemporary Art), opens Mark Justiniani’s exhibition titled Reverb on April 13, 2016, Wednesday, 6pm at the 1F Galleries of the Museum.
 

Reverb explores the different ways of looking, seeing and viewing through Justiniani’s monumental installations that have illusory notions of the abyss. The exhibit explores different realities by giving its viewers multi-layered artworks whose ever-changing forms challenge visual and spatial grounding. Thus the exhibit invites us to question what is in front of us, and how the manipulation of specific media justifies this perception.

Mark Justiniani (b. 1966) is a visual artist who has participated in numerous exhibitions here and abroad (Singapore, Denmark, USA, Australia, Malaysia, Japan), including the Asia Pacific Triennial in Brisbane, Australia in 1996. He was a member of ABAY, Grupong Salingpusa and Sanggawa Art Collective. He was conferred distinctions such as the Grand Prize of the 7th Metrobank National Painting Competition in 1990, the Thirteen Artist Grant in 1994, the Malihaw Awardee as the Most Outstanding Victorianon in the Arts in 1997, and the Philippine Representative to the ASEAN Art Awards in 1999.
