Given the closure of the Cultural Center of the Philippines’ Main Theater Building for rehabilitation beginning next year, off-site exhibitions are now lined up to be able to continue showcasing the CCP 21AM collection to the public.
As a kick-off to the exhibition roadshow, and in celebration of Museum and Galleries Month, the CCP Visual Arts and Museum Division partners with ARTHALAND for an exhibition this coming October at the ground floor lobby of Arthaland Century Pacific Tower (ACPT) at 5th Avenue corner 30th St., Bonifacio Global City.
The CCP had chosen ACPT as the venue to host its inaugural off-site exhibition titled Details & Abstractions: Selections from the Cultural Center of the Philippines 21AM Collection. Arthaland Century Pacific Tower is the first building in the world to be certified by the International Finance Corporation, a member of the World Bank Group, as zero carbon under its EDGE program, the acronym standing for Excellence in Design for Greater Efficiency. In addition to its world-class design and its superior quality construction, ACPT’s sustainable features serve to enhance its occupants’ mental and physical health similar to how art brings about immeasurable benefits to an individual’s as well as the entire communities’ well-being.
