“RESETTING THE CLOCK” AT THE CCP

Art
The Cultural Center of the Philippines presents its photography exhibition for 2018 with support from HP Inc. Housed under the CCP’s Exhibition Venue Grant Program, the exhibit Resetting the Clock presents photo-based artworks by Hannah Aaron, Cindy Aquino, Zeus Bascon, Gino Javier, Jazel Kristin, Jippy Pascua, Charles Salazar, Jhemuel Salvador, Gerome Soriano, Marco Ugoy, Sidney Valdez, and Tanya Villanueva.



Running from August 30 to October 21, 2018 at the CCP’s 4th floor galleries, Resetting the Clock is curated by Con Cabrera. Cabrera says of the exhibition, “to create an interconnection to the emergence of photography’s new cycle and language, the artists were chosen to stand as markers in the local photo-based landscape, as they display a diversity of output, process, and theoretical perspective. The produced works of art interpret language as a varied form of communication influenced by cultural, societal, and familial upbringing. This collection serves as interlocutor of signs of the new influences in the constant shifting of language and/or viewing of image, such as emergent subcultures, gender expansion, topographies or class consciousness.”

Interested viewers are invited to attend the opening reception of Resetting the Clock on August 30, 2018, Thursday, 6:00 pm, at the CCP’s Bulwagang Fernando Amorsolo (Small Gallery). On October 30, 2018, two of the participating artists in the exhibition will be giving a free workshop at the CCP MKP Hall under the CCP Arts Online program. There will be a collage-making workshop by Charles Salazar and a ‘zine-making workshop by Gerome Soriano from 2:00 to 4:00 pm.

Resetting the Clock may be viewed from Tuesday to Sunday, 10:00 am to 6:00 pm, and until 10:00 pm on days with evening performances in the CCP Main Theater.

THE LIFE AND SEX SCANDAL OF CHINESE STAR AND STREETWEAR ICON EDISON CHEN

Edison Chen is a Canadian actor, rapper, singer-songwriter, producer, entrepreneur, artist and fashion designer. Chen is also the founder of CLOT Inc., and the CEO of Clot Media Division Limited.

Having made his debut in the Hong Kong music industry in 1999, he released a number of Cantopop and Mandopop albums under the record company Emperor Entertainment Group before finally making his first hip-hop album in Cantonese with the critically acclaimed 2004 release of Please Steal This Album. He followed this up with the 2005 Cantonese hip-hop album Hazy: The 144 Hour Project and the 2007 Mandarin hip-hop album Allow Me To Re-Introduce Myself. On February 21, 2008 he publicly announced that he intended to step away “indefinitely” from the Hong Kong entertainment industry due to the sex photo scandal in 2008, in which numerous photographs of his naked body and private parts, and those of several Hong Kong Chinese actresses, were published online. He returned in 2010 but other than a brief cameo in the 2014 film Golden Chickensss, he did not make a complete comeback to the Hong Kong film industry until 2016. Musically, Chen has since cemented his place in Chinese hip-hop with his 2010 comeback album Confusion, in addition to several successful studio albums since then.
