A mega international arts and cultural event, organized by the Secretariat for Social Affairs and Culture, will be held from next month, according to a statement by the organizer.
The event includes a raft of exhibitions, dance performances, concerts and drama, as this year marks the 20th anniversary of Macau’s return to the motherland, the statement said.
Two large-scale exhibitions are to be held by the Macau Museum of Art (MAM) from next month – “Italian Renaissance Drawings from the British Museum,” with a total of 52 drawings by Italian Renaissance masters, and “Beauty in the New Era,” with 90 masterpieces by various contemporary masters from the collection of the National Art Museum of China.
In June, the mega event’s highlight “Art Macau: International Art Exhibition” will kick off at the Macau Museum of Art for an “immersive” cultural atmosphere with the entire city as an art gallery and as art gardens, the statement said. A series of concerts by the Macau Orchestra and the Macau Chinese Orchestra are also to be staged from June to October.
Meanwhile, the International Youth Music Festival, International Youth Dance Festival and International Youth Drama Festival are to be held in the latter half of this year to develop the city into a world-class exchange platform for culture and arts, the statement said.(Macaunews)
