CCP NAMES 2012 RECEPIENTS OF THE THIRTEEN ARTISTS AWARD



CCP NAMES 2012 RECEPIENTS OF THE THIRTEEN ARTISTS AWARD
June 20, 2012 10:51am

The Cultural Center of the Philippines has selected the winners for the 2012 Thirteen Artists Award (TAA).  The list includes artists engaged in a variety of contemporary visual arts forms such as painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, and video installation works.  The 2012 Thirteen Artists awardees include: Joey Cobcobo, Marina Cruz, Kiri Dalena, Riel Hilario, Robert Langenegger, Michael Muñoz, Wawi Navarroza, Jan Leeroy New, Kaloy Olavides, Renan Ortiz, Mark Salvatus, Rodel Tapaya, and Costantino Zicarelli.

This program was first conceived in 1970 initially as a curatorial guide for an exhibition organized by then CCP Museum director Roberto Chabet.  His intent was to identify artists who took the “chance and risk to restructure, restrengthen, and renew art making and art thinking….” It was later adopted as a biennial award by Chabet’s successor, the late Raymundo Albano.  This makes the TAA the oldest award program conferred by the CCP, two years ahead of the National Artist Award which started in 1972.

Since 2009, the TAA has been a triennial award.  It is administered by the CCP Visual Arts and Museum Division (VAMD) under the Production and Exhibition Department.  During the two and half month nomination period (between February to mid-April), 56 nominations were received from museum directors, gallerists, independent curators, heads of art and cultural organizations, and former TAA awardees. From these, 79 artists qualified for the selection process.  This year’s panel of jurors included past TAA winners namely Pandy Aviado (1970), Agnes Arellano (1988), Elmer Borlongan (1994) and Ringo Bunoan (2003), and Boots Herrera, VAMD Director, representing the CCP.

Winners will receive a cash grant to defray cost of materials for producing new works for a group exhibition to be held at the Bulwagang Juan Luna (Main Gallery).  The formal recognition of winners will highlight opening ceremony on 18 October 2012.  This year’s exhibition will be curated by Lena Cobangbang and the trophy will be designed by Gary Ross Pastrana, both also former TAA awardees.
