Six international galleries – Art Agenda (Singapore/Jakarta), Gajah Gallery (Singapore/Yogyakarta), Mayoral (Paris/Barcelona), Yavuz Gallery (Singapore/Sydney), Gallery Kogure (Tokyo), and YOD Gallery (Osaka), and two NFT galleries – A/terhen and Cyber Baat will also present exhibitions at Art Fair Philippines 2022. 

The fair has always sought to provide a platform for art practices beyond the recognized urban art centers.  This year, several art groups from the three main island clusters of the Philippines will join the fair for a section that provides Regional Focus. These exhibitors are: Ibagiw Art Fest x Gallery 2600 (Luzon), VIVA ExCon Dasun Bacolod x Orange Project (Visayas),  Langgikit x Museo De Oro x Art Portal Gallery (Mindanao), and Lawig-diwa x Gallery Down South (Mindanao).

#ArtFairPH live at Ayala Triangle Gardens 

Art Fair Philippines will be taking over a new space for its first physical exhibition since 2020.

Working with art consultant Norman Crisologo and exhibition designer Ed Lacson, Art Fair Philippines will present art installations at the Ayala Tower One Fountain Area for the ArtFairPH/Projects section. 

AR Art Trail Aparisyon

#ArtFairPH Augmented Reality, digital meets physical 

For this year’s edition, Art Fair Philippines is inviting its guests to follow an interactive augmented reality (AR) art trail at the Ayala Triangle Gardens using the Daata AR app. 

Named after Leeroy New’s artwork Aparisyon (Apparition), this AR Art Trail examines the timeless nature of storytelling through words and imagery, inspired by the Philippines’ thriving speculative fiction. 

Curated by Daata, this digital-meets-physical show offers an opportunity to discover ground-breaking artists and newly commissioned artworks by artist Leeroy New and author Eliza Victoria.

10 Days of Art

Also complementing the fair is the 10 Days of Art initiative, a series of events around the Makati Central Business District in celebrating art beyond the venue of the fair.   

As in previous years, the public may visit art installations around Makati City.  This year’s three major public art exhibits will include an art installation by James Clar called I Can’t Tell You What I Don’t Know, Only That I Don’t Know at the plinth in front of the Ayala Museum. Works by Juanito Torres and Norman Dreo, two solo exhibits in conversation under the title Perspectives,  will also be on view at the Greenbelt 5 Gallery. For schedule and updates, visit www.10daysofart.com.
