South Arts Festival (formerly Art In The South) has partnered again with Art+ Magazine to give the best that art has to offer in the South this coming April 2018.
“Art+ Magazine was a big help in promoting the event, and there is no other media presence that comprehensively delivers what is happening in the local and regional art scene like Art+ does,” explains South Arts Festival organizer JJ Duque, who is also an artist.
While most art festivals in the country feature acknowledged and acclaimed artists, South Arts Festival also gives opportunity to the aspiring artists who have yet to build their names.
“Of course, we have known artists, but we also put them alongside those who are still rising and who cannot join big festivals because they lack representation from a gallery or art group, ” Duque expounds.
It’s not a big a festival as maybe Art Basel or Art Fair Philippines, but that does not mean that there is a lack of quality in the art. All the art is fresh and some of the best the country has to offer. Hopefully, in the future, international artists will participate to add another perspective.
South Arts Festival will be held on April 22, 2018 at the Filinvest Tent, Filinvest City, Alabang.
