The Overview

When Finale Art File migrated from the fourth floor of SM Megamall to a 450-square-meter mezzanine space, it was a sign that something major was afoot. Like many top Manila galleries, it had sited itself in a mall to connect with a wide viewing public, but in 2008, it was finally able to set up an independent space—now a destination in its own right—thanks to the Philippine art scene’s growing dynamism. “Artists nowadays are more creative, free and daring with their subjects, and with their use of materials and techniques,” says Evita Sarenas, who founded the gallery in 1983. “Collectors and art enthusiasts, on the other hand, are more open to learning about and appreciating young contemporary art, whether drawing, painting, sculpture, photography or installation.”  Today, Finale’s exhibitions are known for their diversity, and include new media shows in a dedicated second-floor video room.
