As the name suggests, the exhibition "Pinto Manhattan Manila" will be a door between two art hubs. Manhattan’s outward-looking scene gives collectors a taste of art made in other countries, while Manila is home to artists whose grit and point of view have sent them out into the world.

On May 22, New York and Manila will be connected via art and technology. Works by 30 Filipino artists will be up for sale at Urban Zen, Donna Karan’s nonprofit space in Greenwich Village. Skype sessions between artists in New York and Manila will add a dynamic touch.

Proceeds from the event will go to the Pinto Art Museum in Antipolo and the Asian Cultural Council, which supports cross-cultural projects by Asian and American artists.

The project is chaired by David Rockefeller, Jr. and Josie Natori, both supporters of the arts and trustees of Asian Cultural Council (ACC). They are also friends of Dr. Joven Cuanang, a neurologist and art collector who founded Pinto Art Museum. The big strip of land holds more than 200 art pieces spread out in gardens and Mediterranean buildings designed by Antonio Leaño.

Cuanang, his Italian intern Dr. Luca Parolari, and art historian Patrick Flores helped curator Federico de Vera select pieces for the event. Among the featured artists are the veteran trio Elmer Borlongan, Emmanuel Garibay, and Mark Justiniani; and ACC grantees Manuel Ocampo, Riel Hilario, Leeroy New, Dexter Fernandez, and Nona Garcia.
