The Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) and the Association of Pinoyprintmakers (AP) presents 20/30: A Limited Edition Print Portfolio in Celebration of the 50th Year Anniversary of the Cultural Center of the Philippines. This print portfolio that comes in two special sets are a collection of fine prints using traditional printmaking techniques by practitioners who have contributed to the development of Philippine contemporary printmaking and who represent a wide range of generations in Philippine art.
20/30 serves both as an educational tool and collectible for those interested in Philippine art. Included in the folios are exquisite examples of printmaking methods such as relief printing, intaglio and serigraph printing.
In his essay created for the folio, artist Virgilio Aviado speaks of the need for art especially in desolate times, and in its transformative capacity for alleviation from isolation and as a vehicle for communal delights, both for the artist creating it and for the audience appreciating it. The print folio project, while ideated before the rise of the Covid19 pandemic, has been a channel for the participating artists to deal with the difficulties of our time and to give back to the institutions that support their practice. The proceeds of 20/30 I and II will go to fundraising programs of the Cultural Center of the Philippines and the Association of Pinoyprintmakers.
