Museum of Contemporary Art and Design (MCAD) Manila

Housed within the stunning architecture of the College of Saint Benilde’s School of Design and Art (SDA), Museum of Contemporary Art and Design (MCAD) is the only space in the Philippines that approximates an international contemporary art museum and gallery space.  

Located within an art college, MCAD’s programmes are molded in line with the school’s courses: film, fashion design, animation, multimedia arts, photography, arts management, production design, architecture, as well as music production. In step with this, MCAD produces outstanding exhibitions with worldwide standards by collaborating with professional artists and curators, both local and international.  

MCAD provides the experience and exposure to contemporary art works, usually only found outside the country. Its contemporary art exhibitions, projects, as well as other cultural and art-inspired undertakings showcase the possibilities of technology and new media through its internationally-designed programme of contemporary art exhibitions enhanced by an ever-widening educational platform.
