Art Fair Philippines is almost here. It will be opening its doors on Thursday, Feb. 21 and will run until Sunday, Feb. 24 at The Link, Ayala Center in Makati where it will be showcasing modern and contemporary art from 55 galleries—36 local and 19 international ones. But outside this parking building, there will still be a lot of exhibition openings and art events, and we’ve compiled some of them here:
