Mark Valenzuela Shortlisted for the 2008 Ateneo Art Award
A great friend of mine, Dumaguete-based painter and sculptor Mark Valenzuela
, has been short-listed for the 2008 Ateneo Art Award
by the Ateneo Art Gallery
. The award, established in 2004 to honor the memory of the gallery’s founding benefactor Fernando Zobel de Ayala, is recognized locally as the arbiter of excellence in contemporary visual art practice, and internationally as the most important art prize for an emerging artist in the Philippines.
Valenzuela, a Silliman University alumnus, is nominated for “War Zone,” a collection of his sculptural works in clay which was presented in Gallery Duemila in Manila and Mariyah Gallery in Dumaguete.A collection of his new sculptural works will also be presented in October 2008 by the Silliman University Cultural Affairs Committee in an exhibit titled Juan Revisited/Mask Reproduction, together with artist Benjie Ranada.
The finalists were determined by the 2008 Ateneo Art Awards Jury after going through over 130 nominations. Each artist, a Filipino citizen and aged 35 years or under by 31 May 2008, was nominated for a solo or group exhibition in any public venue held between 2 May 2007 and 1 May 2008. Usually twelve, the number of short-listed artists this year was trimmed to ten. The other shortlisted artists include Kawayan De Guia, Poklong Anading, Marina Cruz-Garcia, Christina Dy, Lyra Garcellano, Robert Langenegger, Mark Salvatus, Rachel Rillo, and Mac Valdezco.
The winners will then be announced at a formal ceremony on 7 August 2008 following the 2008 Ateneo Art Awards: Zones of Influence
, an exhibition of the works of the short-listed artists at the Grand Atrium, Shangri-la Mall, Mandaluyong City, from 1-11 August 2008.
