Since its launch in 2013, Art Fair Philippines has become one of the most anticipated events every year. It features the best in Philippine modern and contemporary art, offering a one-of-a-kind and enriching experience.

This year, from February 18 to 21, The Link will once again be transformed into a special place where art and art enthusiasts come together. Here are four things that you need to know, or should I say, four reasons why you shouldn’t miss this year’s event:

In partnership with the Ateneo Art Gallery, this year’s fair will also feature a series of talks that can help enhance one's knowledge and appreciation of art. A section on the 5th level of The Link will become an educational hub of sorts—complete with comfy seats and a bar that offers refreshments.

Ticket holders can attend the talks for free but the organizers suggest that those interested reserve a slot beforehand by sending an e-mail to talks[at]
