Art Fair Philippines 2019 goes big with special Fernando Botero exhibit


It ain’t over until the fat lady sings, which means it can’t start until the curves arrive. This year, Art Fair Philippines is bringing all of that with an exhibit of Colombian titan Fernando Botero.

Botero’s fascination for voluptous forms is embodied in a signature style of exaggerated proportions. His sculptures were a highlight in the now defunct Art Stage in Singapore last year.

Other highlights of Art Fair this year include David Medalla’s “A Stitch in Time,” which will be staged in the Philippines for the very first time, and “Malang Women.”

A strong lineup of 52 galleries, including 16 from outside the Philippines, are joining this year’s event. 

Tickets for #ArtFairPH are on pre-sale online. The fair will open to the public on February 22 and will run until February 24 at The Link carpark in Makati. — LA, GMA News
