PRESS RELEASE
January 17, 2018

The CCP Visual Arts and Museum Division will be presenting an artist talk and demonstration by exhibiting artist Caroline Ongpin this coming 24 January, Wednesday, at 3pm in the Bulwagang Carlos V. Francisco (Little Theater Lobby). Caroline Ongpin is a Filipina visual artist based in New York City, where she is taking classes at The Art Students League. Her exhibition, Waterways, on view at the CCP until 4 February 2018, was developed during her residency at Arquetopia Foundation in Puebla, Mexico. Waterways began by re-imagining the connections between the Philippines and Mexico during the centuries of the Manila Galleon trade and resulted in a rich assembly of lithographs, linocuts, and embossments that discover a map-like language to buoy questions of national identity and sense of origin, while confronting colonial fictions and collective knowledge. Ongpin graduated with a degree in Fine Arts, Major in Painting, from the University of the Philippines in 2015. Her artist talk will include a presentation on her residency experience in Puebla and will end with a demonstration of her printmaking process.
