Alma Quinto

Residency Period
Sep–Dec 2018

Born in Urdaneta, Pangasinan province, the Philippines, Quinto is a visual artist, educator, and cultural worker, whose works aim to empower downtrodden lives and heal broken dreams. Her works have been exhibited in international institutions, and she has been invited to various biennales and triennales, including the Kuala Lumpur Biennale 2018, the Yokohama Triennale 2005 and the Havana Biennale 2004.

Throughout the 3-month Artist-in-Residence programme, Quinto will engage with the local community and seek creative collaborations to enrich the exchange between experiences and learning.

She will share her research, experiences and collaboration during her residency with her immersive installation work.
