The Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) in cooperation with partner institution Philippine High School for the Arts (PHSA) presents the exhibit Balangay, which opens on June 10, 2016, Friday, at 4:00 pm, at the CCP’s Bulwagang Carlos V. Francisco (Little Theater Lobby).

Balangay is a collective of thesis projects by incoming Grade 11 visual arts majors of PHSA in Los Baños, Laguna. The exhibit intends to celebrate passage, the journey of art students showing their growth individually and as a community through constructs and inquiries on beauty, nature, the power and frailty of cultural traditions, and the personas and personalities of negotiated identities by individuals and society.

Then too, Balangay is a complex of mediums and varied forays into materials and techniques, culminating into the thesis process as synthesis of research, conceptualization and studio development, where the students give form to their emerging statements and arguments on flux and the reconstruction of bonds within the Filipino experience.

The thesis project is the final requirement following the curriculum for visual arts majors from Grades 7 to 10. The exhibiting students of Batch Felipe de Leon-Lazaro Francisco belong to the first class entering the initial senior high school program of the PHSA in 2016. The participating students are Payb Biglete, Salve Dagñalan, Equia Dueñas, Asia Entico, Sofia Hurtado, Jude Macasinag, and Nicolas Puyat.

The exhibit will be up until July 10, 2016. Viewing hours are from Tuesday to Sunday, 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.
