Mark Laliberte is a Toronto-based creator with an MFA from the University of Guelph. By applying a curious, hybridized attitude to a project-driven practice, Laliberte has undertaken many different kinds of conceptual-collage explorations, completing a wide range of works with varying visual styles and approaches. He has exhibited across Canada and internationally, including: The Power Plant, Nuit Blanche Toronto, Art Gallery of Windsor, Narwhal Contemporary, CoCA Seattle, Exposure Gallery UK, and countless artist-run centres. He curates the experimental comics site 4panel.ca, and edits the eclectic art-lit journal CAROUSEL. In 2016, he will release three books: 4PANEL 1 — a comics-poetry anthology; Free for the Taking — a collaboration with artist Micah Lexier; and, asemanticasymmetry — a remixing of writer Derek Beaulieu’s letraset poems.
