At its 5th year, ManilART is positioned to be the definitive visual art event in the Philippines — indeed the hottest contemporary art fair in the country.
ManilART 2013 is at once the venue to support new talent, celebrate icons, and advance art appreciation into the cultural mainstream.
Organized by the Bonafide Art Galleries Organization (BAGO) and supported by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), ManilART 2013 will showcase Philippine contemporary art through exhibitions of the country’s finest galleries, as well as forums, workshops, and various activities for aficionados, artists, collectors, and investors.
Last year’s attendance of more than 40 art galleries, 500 artists, 11,000 guests, and 1,400 artworks on display fulfills ManilART’s thrust to be the premier international art fair in the country. But it propels the goal even further. The event was slated from October 9 to 13, 2013 at a brand-new stage, the recently opened SMX Aura Convention Center in Taguig City, a more urbane location worthy of carrying the best in Filipino art. – Text from http://www.manilart.com
