Most people find art too hard to fathom, but really, appreciating art simply lies on your own perception. So if you don't have plans today, go visit Art Fair 2104 in The Link, Makati! This year’s roster is a lot bigger than last year’s (two floors, baby!), so there are loads of art work to ogle at, play around with, and points to discuss with your peers. Still not convinced? Well, we know museums can be pretty intimidating, so if this is your first time to go to an art fair ever, here are tips so you'll look like a seasoned pro!
Stare at an artwork for at least 10 seconds.
Most of the pieces are not what they usually seem, so go ahead, take your time and try to understand why the painter sloshed red paint over that pretty woman’s portrait. Bleeding love, perhaps? See, you’re totally getting it already!
Don’t judge a piece by its cover.
Always keep an open mind. Never ever say anything bad about an artwork out loud because you never know, the artist might just be standing right beside you.
Small talk always works.
Chat up the curator or the artist to further understand the story behind their pieces. Knowing the history behind it can totally change the way you see things.
Don’t be afraid to play around and immerse yourself to the wonderful things around you. After all, art should be fun!
Art Fair Philipppines 2014 is open until Feb 23, Sunday, from 10:00 am to 9:00 pm.
