Metro Manila · ManilART 2013: the definitive visual arts event in the Philippines
As much as 30 galleries are showcasing their art at SMX Aura Convention Center this week to support new talents, celebrate icons, establish networks, and advance art appreciation into the cultural mainstream.
ManilART is the premier international art fair in the country (followed closely by the Art Fair Philippines). Last year, ManilART featured 500 artists and 1,400 artworks that attracted 11,000 visitors, professionals and non-professionals alike. Lectures, workshops, and walking tours are also part of the event.
The Bonafide Art Galleries Organization (BAGO) and the National Commission on Culture and the Arts are organizing the event since 2009. This year it moved from the SMX Convention Center at Mall of Asia to the SMX Convention Center in the newly opened SMX Aura shopping mall in Fort Bonifacio.
