ART: MNL


Art and Soul at Manila F.A.M.E. International October

“The Filipino painting has been able to create a stimulating and original balance between traditional themes and new ideas. Colorful, passionate, and ostentatious, Filipino painting encompasses the totality of the contemporary experience in the country, from low to high culture.” – Sotheby’s, Global Art Auction Company

The continuing boom of young talents in the contemporary arts scene and local fine arts with their masterpieces receiving high bids in international auctions prove that Filipino artists have what it takes to conquer the international world of art. Thus, the debut of ART: MNL at Manila Furnishings and Apparel Manufacturers’ Exchange (F.A.M.E.) International.

This coming 15-18 October at the World Trade Center, renowned and budding Filipino artists and country’s leading galleries will join forces to bring you unique works of art. ART: MNL, a preview to the Philippine International Art Fair in 2010 is a new feature of Manila F.A.M.E. International meant to showcase the export potentials of the creative industries in the Philippines, particularly visual arts. It is also an exhibition designed to promote awareness and recognition of the works of Filipino artists.

“ART: MNL is a great chance to give international exposure to our talented Filipino Artists. Opportunities such as this event are few and far in between,” said Salvador “Buds” Convocar, president of the Art Association of the Philippines (AAP), a non-government organization that provides opportunities to emerging talents and discovering new generations of artists in the Philippines.

Joining the fair are some of the countries leading galleries such as the Art Circle Gallery, Art Asia Fine Arts, Dale Mathis Studio, Galerie Francesca, Gallery Big, Galerie Joaquin, Masterpiece Art Gallery, Sining Kamalig Art Gallery, Syano Art Link, Heritage Art, Galerie Astra, Galleria Nicolas, and Galerie Joaquin-Podium. Art Association of the Philippines (AAP) will also exhibit some of their members’ artworks at the fair.

Art Manila is also a collaboration of government and non-government organizations from the visual arts sector. Members of the show’s advisory board include: Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP), National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), Metropolitan Museum of the Philippines (MET), National Museum (NM), Intellectual Property Office (IPO), Bonafide Art Galleries Organization (BAGO), Art Association of the Philippines (AAP) and Contemporary Art Philippines (CAP).

“ART: MNL is an exciting new art fair which could bring in a host of opportunities for the Philippine art market through its huge draw of foreign buyers,” said Jonathan Sy, President of Bonafide Art Galleries Organization (BAGO). BAGO is non-stock, non-profit association that aims to promote Philippine visual art by organizing art fairs locally and joining shows abroad.

Sy also said “joining ART: MNL is also a good opportunity to test the market of the existing foreign trade buyers of Manila F.A.M.E. International who may be more interested in decorative arts and at the same time are confident that the fair will create a new market composed of local and foreign fine art buyers.”

“It is high time for our own artists to be recognized in the global art market and bring attention to the Philippines as a rich source of great art, and this fair will be a perfect venue to prove it,” Convocar added.

Organized by the Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions (CITEM), an attached agency of the Department of Trade and Industry, ART: MNL also aims to foster a cultural interaction and exchanges with other art markets such as Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia.

ART: MNL also includes a nude sketching session as well as seminars on art appreciation, art conservation, and art trends in collaboration with National Museum and NCCA.
