The CCP's new 13 Artists named
(The Philippine Star) - October 1, 2012 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - 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, re-strengthen, and renew art-making and art-thinking.

The exhibit opening on Oct. 18 will be highlighted with the formal recognition of winners. 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.
