The word “multiples” relates to the ability of the printmaking process to produce original editions. Similarly, in the context of Benedicto 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 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. The exhibition is part of the year-long celebration BenCab 50 Creative Years. The exhibit will be held from 9 June to 16 August 2015 at the CCP’s Bulwagang Juan Luna (Main Gallery).
Malayan Insurance Company Inc. is the Official Insurer of BENCAB IN MULTIPLES: A Print Retrospective.
