The consistency of the Filipino artist in the past decade, both in the local and global scene, has been a key factor in re-establishing the Philippines as a cultural powerhouse in Southeast Asia.
Whether at art shows, in auctions, or even in social media, Filipino artists have featured prominently. It is this achievement that this year’s ManilArt is looking to underline when it kicks off on October 13-15, 2017 at the SMX Convention Center, SM Aura Premier in Taguig City.
