ART REEL: Art Fair Philippines 2021 Double-Take

Weekend’s coming up. The virtual Art Fair Philippines 2021 – perhaps at its most ambitious edition yet – continues until May 15. The fair's program has been neatly packed with choice topics for its talks, with its open studios and tours cozily alongside.

Standouts are Cebuano artists’ Kolown, Russ Ligtas, Ivy Marie Apa, and Ronyel Compra’s discussion on their creative practices and relevant social issues; Neal Oshima and the Design Center of the Philippines’ handmade paper-making demonstration with Piña and Abaca fiber; and the final talk of commanding notice between Narra Gallery’s Colin Goltra, Fewocious, Parrott, and Jonathan Wolfe: What’s Next for NFTs?
