Ushering in a New Golden Age of Filipino Art

Manilart, the country’s longest-running art fair, celebrates its 8th year of promoting the best of Philippine creative artistry from the various regions of the country.

Gathering support from some of the finest local and international galleries, ManilArt elevates the standards of our dynamic art scene through various exhibitions featuring conceptualized artists’ collections while it connects artists and galleries with art communities and institutions here and abroad.

ManilArt builds more awareness of and appreciation for Philippine art not only with exhibitions but also through art caravans, lectures, workshops, demonstrations, guided tours, and other activities.

ManilArt 2016, with continuing support from the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), kicks off this year’s event with the theme “Ushering in a New Golden Age of Filipino Art.”

The presence of Filipino art abroad is now more marked than ever. The heightened notice given to both contemporary pieces and works by the masters in art events outside of the country simply echoes what has always been the strength of ManilArt. The all-embracing nature of ManilArt is evident with its consistently broad showcase of Philippine talent ranging from presentations from the young and up and coming, to established trailblazers and respected icons that also include ethnic and regional creative expressions.
The corresponding enthusiasm that meets ManilArt’s yearly presentations has not only been constant, it has grown such that the delightfully varied audiences which include young students, seasoned collectors, critics, educators, captains of industry, and quad-media practitioners are continually joined by budding aesthetes and art investors.

With the synergistic rise of both talent and viewership, the Philippine art industry is truly in its new golden age and ManilArt is proud to have been instrumental in this resurgence.
