(b.1976, Manila, Philippines)

The focus of my work is on art as expanded practice involving residencies, performances, exhibits and archives. This includes research on ecology of art practices (artist initiatives/ collectives, art residencies,  sound practice communities).

I am an Associate Professor at the Department of Theory, College of Fine Arts, University of the Philippines. I also serve as Curator for the University of the Philippines Fine Arts Gallery and Director for the University of the Philippines Art Prize. 
For my independent practice, I founded and curated art project series Project Glocal (2011-2015) and Composite Noises (2015-2024).  

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Philippines Studies and Master of Arts in Museum Studies from the University of the Philippines, and Doctor of Philosophy in Cultural Studies from Lingnan University Hong Kong. In 2020 I was appointed Research Fellow at the LUHK Centre for Cultural Research and Development.
