During the Manila Biennale, the gardens, plaza, museums, and chambers of Intramuros will be transformed into art exhibition spaces, galleries, and performance venues.
The theme for the inaugural Manila Biennale is ‘Open City’ – homage to the walled city’s beginnings as a port for the Galleon Trade, a time when the Philippine capital opened itself up to the world and welcomed new ideas, products, and people.
Navigating around Intramuros will be made easier through the Infomuros mobile app. The app will feature the locations of the Biennale exhibitions along with information on the artworks and artists. It will also give directions to all historic landmarks, museums, parks, shopping areas, dining options, and public facilities in the Walled City.
Tickets are priced at PhP5,300 for the Biennale Passport (includes access to all exhibitions, museums and parks; transportation between all Biennale sites within Intramuros; an invitation to the Artists’ Ball and Manila Transitio Memorial Concert; priority reservations for all screenings, talks, performances, and other public programs; concierge services at the VIP Lounge; and discounts or special deals with Manila Biennale partners); PhP880 for Regular Day Pass (includes access to all exhibitions, museums and parks; transportation between all Biennale sites within Intramuros); and PhP380 for Student Day Pass (includes access to all exhibitions, museums and parks
