The said art event was led by premier local and international art galleries and institutions. MoCAF also catered international art galleries from Japan, Malaysia, and Indonesia, including  Srisasanti Syndicate, Yod Tokyo & Editions, Gallery Kogure, Kobayashi Gallery, and Artemis Art.

The organizers had hoped to expand the sphere of modern and contemporary art in the Philippines through their successful art workshop, art caravan, art bazaar, dialogues, and other activities. 

One of the highlights of the said art festival was the “MoCAF Dialogues.” The invited speaker tackled the topic “Art and Public Policy: Challenges and Opportunities.” Recognizing that art perception, appreciation, and consumption are founded on sociocultural conditions, it was emphasized that political objectives and agendas affect cultural and artistic policy.

Another topic discussed was about “Art and AI: Authorship, Authenticity, Integrity, and other important issues.” It discussed the artistic, legal, and psychological implications of the rise of artificial intelligence or AI. 

Aside from artists and other visitors, several celebrities were also spotted in the event, like Megan Young and his husband Mikael Daez, and Kapuso Primetime royalties/couple Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera-Dantes. 

The organizers had also expressed their gratitude for everyone who had joined them, rain or shine.
