Mark Soltero's Back Catalogue exhibition rounds out a carried programme for 2013 for CPIT's ArtBox.

“It feels very fitting to finish a year of fantastic exhibitions at ArtBox by featuring one of our graduates. Mark has gone on to be very active in different ways in the Christchurch arts scene and this exhibition represents several years of research and developing his own work,” CPIT Student Project Manager Martin Trusttum.

Mark’s work is private collections in California and New York, Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

Meanwhile ArtBox’s new Lantern Gallery, launched 12 September, features Bodytok Quintet: The Human Instrument Archive by Mark Soltero, in collaboration with SCAPE 7 Public Art Christchurch Biennial and Christchurch Art Gallery’s Outer Spaces.
