Since its inception in 2013, Art Fair Philippines has emerged as one of the most-awaited annual events for art lovers and collectors in the city and the region. The fair serves as a platform for showcasing and selling the best in modern and contemporary Philippine art. As with the previous fairs the organizers have staged, this year is an even bigger and better event. From the introduction of a brand new section to an increase of participating galleries, indeed, this year’s Art Fair Philippines is shaping up to be the best one yet.

For 2018, Art Fair Philippines puts the spotlight on photography with the addition of ARTFAIRPH/PHOTO. The section features the works of renowned photographers Neal Oshima and Eduardo Masferre. With the added participation of five new galleries, the fair maximizes its venue The Link by occupying all the spaces of the seven-story building. The sixth edition of Art Fair Philippines kicked off with a Collectors Preview on February 27. It is officially open to the public from March 1 to 4 at The Link in Makati. Here, everything that caught our eye at Art Fair Philippines 2018:
