This catalogue was published in conjunction with the exhibition Thrice Upon A Time: A Century of Story in the Art of the Philippines. Philippines has a rich tradition of storytelling, with stories from her pre-colonial past to present-day tales, and the exhibition presents the epic story of the country and her people through visual art. The role of the artist as storyteller is highlighted and ideas about representation, authenticity, identity and history are explored. Playing with the classic line that begins our most familiar stories, "Once upon a time", the exhibition suggests that the best stories are told over and over again. The exhibition presents works from the Philippine grand masters to some of her most exciting contemporary artists, including Juan Luna, Felix Resurrection Hidalgo, Fernando Amorsolo, Carlos 'Botong' Francisco, Anita Magsaysay-Ho, Ben Cabrera, Charlie Co, Jose Tence Ruiz and Geraldine Javier.
