Marisa Gallemit

Last updated: March 5, 2024

Marisa Gallemit is a Filipina-Canadian visual artist. Informed by motherhood and third culture rituals, her work spans sculpture, site-specific installation, storytelling, and arts advocacy. Since 2010 Marisa has been active in Ontario and Quebec with performative works, design installations for music + art festivals and art-making workshops; she has directed visual art programs for non-gallery community venues in Ottawa, and has produced a large-scale public art installation for the City of Mississauga. Through an ongoing exploration of found objects and their potential energy, Gallemit’s practice leans deeply into Buckminster Fuller’s Query: “Now how do we make this spaceship work?”
