The Peninsula Manila has announced the revival of its renowned contemporary art program, “Art in Resonance,” featuring a captivating exhibition of eight site-specific tapestries crafted by Philippine National Artist for Visual Arts, Benedicto “BenCab” Cabrera, in collaboration with Moooi Carpets.

The exhibition, situated at The Lobby, is on view until July 21. It also offers complimentary access to all guests, with suite patrons also enjoying guided tours and additional activities throughout their stay.

Inspired by his iconic works such as “Sabel” and his nostalgic “Larawan” series, these tapestries, including “Sette Movementi,” “Triptych on Sabel 2 and 3,” “Noong Bata pa si Sabel,” “Farm Boy,” “Isadora’s Dance,” and “Three Muses,” represent one of the artist’s largest collections to date.

Partnering with Abitare Internazionale, Moooi Carpets has transformed eight of BenCab’s paintings into stunning tapestries using cutting-edge digital technology, preserving every nuance of color, texture, and tone with unparalleled precision.

The Peninsula Manila also offers a special menu inspired by BenCab’s tapestries

Initially launched in 2019 and subsequently embraced as a global initiative across all Peninsula hotels, Art in Resonance endeavors to provide guests with immersive experiences that celebrate the rich cultural tapestry of the cities they inhabit.

Rooted in the belief that art serves as a universal language, transcending borders and fostering connections, the program champions both established and emerging artists.

Complementing the exhibition, The Peninsula Manila presents a special BenCab Art in Resonance Afternoon Tea menu, inspired by the artist’s tapestries, available at The Lobby until June 23. Priced at P2,888 per set, or P4,388 with a flute of Champagne, this culinary experience promises to delight the senses.

On June 23, The Conservatory will host the inaugural Art in Resonance TALKS: BenCab in Conversation with Ambeth Ocampo. Joined by renowned historian and close confidante Ambeth Ocampo, BenCab will delve into his exploration of Filipino identity and the cultural narratives underpinning his work.

Tickets for Art in Resonance TALKS: BenCab in Conversation with Ambeth Ocampo, priced at P3,888, include admission to the afternoon tea buffet at The Upper Lobby, starting at 4:00 p.m. following the talk, which begins at 3:00 p.m. Pre-registration and pre-payment are mandatory for attendance.
