Curated by Gina Osterloh
Philippine-born, American artist Cirolo Domine works in the genres of drawing, installation, and mixed media. Visually and culturally crossing bridges, he negotiates and recognizes absences in history, and consciously translates and mistranslates systems and forms to create new subjectivities.
He is also a curator, collaborator, and activist and has worked for the L.A. Gay and Lesbian Center’s Advocate Gallery. He has been included in numerous group shows at Exit Art, New York; Guggenheim Gallery at Chapman University; Plug-in Gallery, Winnipeg; and Commonwealth and Council. His latest projects are MYLT (Me Love You Long Time) at the Aljira Center for the Arts, New Jersey; Sextile at Commonwealth and Council, Men’s Work at the Fabric Factory, San Francisco. He organized I’m pure i tea, a traditional tea ceremony at the MAK Center’s Schindler House where he collaborated with artists Anna Sew Hoy, Michael Queenland, Pato Hebert, Ashley Hunt and others.
Domine lives and works in Los Angeles. He received his BA from UCLA in 1993 and his MFA from UC Irvine in 1996.
