From all the stress in our lives, sometimes all we need is one big inhale of art. Last March 1-4, The Link’s carpark housed a seven-floor collection of artworks from various Filipino visual artists. From contemporary photographs, to mind-boggling installations, the four floors of the carpark building were oozing with passion, stories, and colors, all part of an annual initiative to generate support for Filipino visual artists and make the best of the Philippine contemporary and modern art more accessible to the public. A total of 51 galleries participated in the fair, including 36 local ones that we could visit soon. Apart from the #ahrt, people flocked to the fair for the talks and tours offered which added another dimension of appreciation for contemporary Philippine art. An immersive experience such as ArtFairPH cultivates a deeper understanding of the art of our roots, where Filipinos can forge forward to #CreateLegacies.
