When the worlds of dance, fashion, architecture, and art collide, the outcome is simply breathtaking. Days before the live and online auction of  ‘Important Philippine Art & Furniture’ on March 13, 2021, at 2 PM at NEX Tower, Ballet Philippines, under the patronage of Salcedo Auctions, presented a beautiful tribute presentation that commemorates 500 years of cross-cultural encounters (1521-2021). The video sparks dialogue regarding the past five centuries since Spain arrived in the country, but from a Filipino-centric perspective, and is definitely a feast for the eyes.
