CCP exec resigns in over controversial art exhibit



MANILA, Philippines—Karen Flores, chief of the visual arts division of the Cultural Center of the Philippines, resigned Wednesday in the wake of politicians’ cry for blood in the face of a controversial art exhibition that some people found offensive to religious sensibilities.

Flores announced her decision in a forum sponsored by the University of the Philippines’ Art Studies Department on Wednesday.

“Nagbigay na ako ng resignation (I already issued my resignation),” an emotional Flores said amid applause.
