The word “multiples” relates to the ability of the printmaking process to produce original editions. Similarly, in the context of National Artist for Visual Arts Benedicto “BenCab” Cabrera’s art practice, this word pertains to how he pursued and approached different themes and subjects in multiple takes, both in print and in painting, contemporizing his iconic images and at times adapting them to personal narratives and issues of the day.
The Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP), in cooperation with the BenCab Art Foundation and Sureste Properties Inc., invites everyone to a retrospective exhibition of prints by National Artist Benedicto Cabrera entitled BenCab in Multiples: A Print Retrospective. Part of the year-long celebration BenCab 50 Creative Years, the exhibit will be held from June 9 to August 16 at the CCP’s Bulwagang Juan Luna (Main Gallery).
Admission to the CCP galleries is free. Viewing hours are from Tuesday to Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
