Mark Golamco is a Filipino-American artist and multi-instrumental musician. He makes music, dance, drawing, painting, video, and performance. His work tells stories that bridge his life experience with those of past queer ancestors. A classically trained Viola player, Golamco studied orchestral and chamber music in the San Francisco Bay Area and later received a BA in Art from UCLA and an MFA in Painting from RISD. Outlaws, oddballs, and outcasts often take center stage throughout his work as he researches historical figures and relates to them through his experience as a gay person of color. He recently showed his music and dance piece, The Ghost of Ted Dragon, at MOCA. The performance is about the ballet dancer, Ted Dragon, and his lover, the Filipino-American painter Alfonso Ossorio. Golamco is still developing this work as well as researching and composing music for another piece about the unique experience he had performing music regularly for the late playwright Edward Albee.
