NOMINATIONS FOR 2015 THIRTEEN ARTISTS AWARDS
Deadline for nominations: 12 December 2014, 6pm
The THIRTEEN ARTISTS AWARDS (TAA) began as a curatorial project of the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) Museum under the directorship of its first curator Roberto Chabet (1937-2013). The first group of artists gathered under this program exhibited their works in 1970. In a document on the event, Chabet made a critical connection between the Thirteen Artists and the Philippine Modernists. Both generations of artists were viewed to have sought in their time the chance and risk to “restructure, re-strengthen and renew art making and art thinking… that lend viability to Philippine art.” Since then, the award would be given to deserving recipients without regularity or pattern, and always subject to constant revision. This partly explains the interesting texture of the roster.
It is in this context that the Thirteen Artists Awards is sustained to this day: to mark the turnings in and of Philippine contemporary art, to update its modernizing potential and to assess how artists today engage with other forces in the art world. 
In 2009, the CCP Thirteen Artists Awards was established as a triennial event. What has characterized the work of the awardees, then and now, is a fresh visual language, innovative solutions to artistic problems, and sustained creative output.

The 2015 Thirteen Artists Awards is open for nominations until 12 December 2014, Friday at 6pm.
GUIDELINES:Who are qualified for nomination?
Nominated artists must possess the following eligibility requirements:

Body of work characterized by artistic integrity, innovativeness, and forcefulness of ideas

Filipino citizenship
Less than 40 years old in the year of conferment or must be born before 1975

Alliance Française de Manille (AFM)Embassy of FranceTête d’Enfant Modern Circus CompanyME, MYSELF AND US
07 October 2014; 7:30pmTanghalang Aurelio Tolentino (CCP Little Theater)
The trio Me, Myself and Us juggle with bowling pins the same way they juggle with emotions. Attempting to fly on a trapeze while discovering their identity during the flight. Throughout the process, they end up disagreeing a little, standing up for themselves and surprising not each other, but themselves.
On stage, the three companions throw themselves into the air, with no defined or premeditated direction. In this manner, they are able to fully experience their new relationship and reveal each other’s common characteristics. There are no offstage wings in this show, everything is open for the public to watch. They can see the characters wandering on stage and suddenly breaking out into their performance. This exposes the show’s live intensity.
Like two turbines creating electricity, the friction between each artist’s personality is what brings the show to life. The first character is a being who comes from… no one knows where. His long jacket and curly hair gives him a resemblance to the Little Prince, who would have aged without ever having answered his constant questions and living his life to the fullest. Then there is the Pierrot-type character. This one does not have the same sadness painted on his face but does often have his head up in the clouds. He holds on to his trapeze the same way others hold on to their dreams. Finally, there is the third companion who is built, smooth and is looking for ways to develop his character. He explores new ways of dressing.
Ticket prices: Php600 (center seats) | Php 400 (side seats)50% for all students / 20% for senior citizens, PWD, government and military personnel, and AFM members. Must present ID upon purchase.
For tickets and more details on the event, please contact Christine Sace, AFM Communication and Marketing Coordinator, at (632)895-7585 / (632) 895-7441, CCP Box Office at (632)832-2704 or Ticketworld at (632)891-9999.

BENEATH THE SURFACE, STRUCTURES AND SCRATCHES
Ged Merino
with support from Galleria Duemila
15 October to 23 November 2014
Bulwagang Carlos V. Francisco (Little Theater Lobby)
Artist talk: 15 October, 4pm
Opening reception: 15 October, 6pm
The Cultural Center of the Philippines presents Beneath the Surface, Structures and Scratches, a solo exhibition by Ged Merino at the Bulwagang Carlos V. Francisco (Little Theater Lobby), on view from 15 October to 23 November 2014. Relative to Filipino’s penchant for diligence, process is integral to Merino’s practice as he employs unconventional methods of image-making. His textile-based works are stitched prints sourced out by rubbing, hammering and scratching onto any surface with texture from among the scattered objects, walls, streets and pavements of his neighborhood in Sunnyside Queens, New York. For the artist, it is a way of collecting artifacts from people’s lives, a sort of archaeological expedition where he sought to record traces of living and thus preserving memories as links to the otherwise forgotten existences, however banal they may have been.

For more information, contact the CCP Visual Arts and Museum Division, Production and Exhibition Department at telephone numbers (632)832-1125 to 39 loc. 1504/1505, (632)832-3702, mobile (63920) 4700690, or email ccp.exhibits@gmail.com, or visit www.culturalcenter.gov.ph
