Tuesday, August 9, 2011
THE Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) closed its main gallery where the controversial "Kulo Exhibit" highlighting images of Jesus Christ is on display.
Several Catholic bishops have criticized the art exhibit at the CCP that features photographs of Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary adorned with objects like condoms.
Retired Lingayen-Dagupan Archbishop Oscar Cruz earlier called the exhibit a "desecration" and asked those responsible for it to see a psychiatrist.
Bishops also urged the public to boycott the exhibit.
The CCP said the management has reviewed policies and now taking steps to enable its officers and staff to make more informed decisions in the future.
It said it shall continue to act as catalyst for free expression. (Sunnex)
