Art Fair Philippines is back yet again, turning four floors of a parking structure into a repository for the very best art in the Philippines, and a place where people take selfies that are unironically posted on Instagram with the hashtag #art. A preview was held on the night before the fair’s public opening, and we sent photographer Tammy David to capture the broad spectrum of artists, patrons, and celebrities that arrived to drink free wine and take in the country’s artistic zeitgeist. Let’s art!
