ALL SET FOR A BIGGER AND BETTER MANILART 10




After the astounding success of last year’s MANILART 09, the Bonafide Art Galleries Organization (BAGO), teams up once more with the National Commission on Culture and Arts (NCCA) and the Department of Tourism (DOT) to showcase the finest in Philippine visual arts via the bigger and better MANILART 10, the 2nd Philippine International Art Fair.

Slated for a four-day public run at the SMX Convention Center Hall 4 at the Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City from July 29 until August 1, 2010 from 11am to 8pm. MANILART 10 promises to dazzle art lovers and enthusiasts with the best and broadest examples of Philippine contemporary art. Over 1,000 paintings and sculptures by 400 of the country’s brightest talents will be on display and over 60 of the finest art galleries participating, thus making the fair the biggest ever in Philippine history.

“In the first year of MANILART, it took us three long months to fill up the 40 exhibition booths planned,” says BAGO president Jonathan Sy. “This year 70 of the booths snapped up within two days by some of the most prestigious galleries nationwide. We post a 40% increase in the participation with half of that number getting double-sized booths.”

The BAGO also expresses its gratitude to the management of the SMX Convention Center as the space more than doubled and more importantly for agreeing to lease Hall 4 at a subsidized rate owing to their support to Filipino art and artists.

Exciting activities such as painting demonstrations, on-the-spot competitions, “how-to” lectures and many more are lined-up. That is why the BAGO is very pleased that the NCCA Committee on Art Galleries headed by Lyn Yusi initiated the approval of a larger grant for MANILART 10. (30)
