Phantasmapolis x Manila: Select Works from the 2021 Asian Art Biennial

Phantasmopolis x Manila is the 2022-2023 Philippines iteration of the 2021 Asian Art Biennial. This edition features works from six Taiwanese artists alongside three Filipino artists namely: Catalina Africa, Alvin Zafra, and Mark Salvatus. Among the five curators of the 2021 biennial, curator Tessa Maria Guazon helms this latest edition at the M as the project unravels Asian futurism, sci-fi culture, and the imagination of the future through contemporary art, archives, and public programs.

The Metropolitan Museum of Manila (the M) endeavours to become a leading hub for modern and contemporary art by Filipino and international artists, as we move to the heart of the city. Established at the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Complex in Manila in 1976, we continue our work at our new home in Bonifacio Global City with new spaces covering 3,000 sqm by envisioning a world where people of all walks of life appreciate the arts. Embracing art for all, it is our role to help Filipinos discover the creative spirit innate in us, to deepen the understanding of the role of the arts in everyone’s lives.

Regular viewing from Tuesday to Saturday 10am-4pm with morning and afternoon viewing batches. All are requested to register online at least a day before visiting the museum through this form. Entrance is free of charge.
