After a rollercoaster year that is 2020, ManilART is coming back stronger.

The event, which is the first and longest-running art fair in the Philippines, will return more in touch with its roots at the SMX Convention Center, SM Aura Premier, and Taguig City from Oct. 13 to 17, 2021.

This year’s official theme is “Continuing Legacies,” which aims to open the dialogue on one’s role in arts and culture, particularly now that online media has established itself as a competitive playing field. 

Just like last year, the fair will hold on-site and online viewings. Digital activities have also been organized at ManilArt’s website, which will include virtual walkthroughs and art education.

  • Tarlac Art – Oct. 1 to 22, 2021 at Diwa ng Tarlac, Tarlac City
  • Balai Kalipay Museum in Mindanao – Malagos Mountains

ManilART 2021 will also feature activities and exhibits from the National Quincentennial Committee. It will also host the NQC-ManilART Lounge.
