Buen Calubayan (b.1980) devises his art projects to understand and organize his life in relation to the context of a larger community. He uses painting, installation, performance, research and documentation as he navigates through mainstream, museum-based and non-traditional modes of art validation. He is an artist/curator with a BFA degree and Masteral units in Cultural Heritage Studies; a five-year teaching experience at the College of Fine Arts and Design at the University of Santo Tomas and has been a Museum worker from 2002-2013 at the UST Museum and National Museum of the Philippines. He was a Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) 13 Artist Awardee in 2009. Recently he finished a residency and exhibition at the Visual Art Centre of La Trobe University in Australia, a grant he was selected for after winning the Ateneo Art Awards (AAA) in 2013. This year, he was again shortlisted for the same award.

Tito & Tita (Manila) is a collective of young artists working mainly with film and photography based in the Philippines. As individual filmmakers, their works have been featured in various film festivals and art fairs in the past years, including the International Film Festival Rotterdam (2013), the Museum of the Moving Image, New York (2012), and Documenta in Kassel (2012). As a collective, they have presented their works at the Ishmael Bernal Gallery, U.P. Film Center (2012) and at Green Papaya Art Projects, Manila (2013), Gene Siskel Film Center, Chicago (2013), Blanc gallery, Manila (2014), Silverlens, Singapore (2014), Echo Park Film Center, Los Angeles (2014), redefining independent cinema and photography in Manila via an enthralling transformation of images and disarming practicality, amidst all the symbolism, surrealism, and a variation of experimental techniques.
