Samsung honors national artist BenCab with exhibit

Samsung recently honored national artist Benedicto “BenCab” Cabrera with the opening of an interactive exhibit at the Yuchengco Museum for his 5oth year as one of the Philippines’ most renowned artists. Coinciding with the event, the company also unveiled a BenCab Limited Edition version of their much celebrated Galaxy Note 5.


BenCab’s 50 Creative Years

The one-of-a-kind exhibit, aptly named “BenCab in Two Movements,” captures the National Artist’s transformational, collaborative spirit. It captures how art and technology are intertwined. The show allows visitors to Yuchengco Museum to dance along to BenCab’s collaborator, Polish choreographer Paulina Wycichowska, whose movements are captured in 40 sketches in the 2006 work Studies of Dance Movements. The exhibit uses customized Samsung Smart TV and mobile apps to enhance the visitors’ interactive experience.

Samsung also unveiled the Galaxy Note 5 BenCab Limited Edition. Only 1,000 units will be made available in the market. The limited-edition phablet comes in the Gold Platinum Galaxy Note 5 variant with three pre-loaded Samsung art applications, exclusive BenCab artwork wallpapers, a commemorative BenCab in Two Movements micro art book, a special protective case featuring BenCab’s 2007 work Dance Interpretation, a certificate of authenticity, and unique serial number engraving at the back of the device.

The launch of the limited-edition Galaxy Note 5 captures BenCab’s belief that technology can bring the arts and culture closer to the hearts and minds of Filipinos, a cause supported by Samsung.
