This exhibition presents works of six calligraphers and painters from mainland China and Macao. The contents of the works are rich and developed in different styles and social contexts. The twelve art pieces to be exhibited will definitely bring a unique artistic experience to the audience.
"Art Macao" is a large-scale international cultural and art programme led by the Secretary for Social Affairs and Culture (SASC) of Macao SAR Government and is grandly launched in 2019. From June to October, IFT will organise a series of activities named "Art Mingle@IFT" under this programme. The series is intended to gather, blend and showcase the most important features of the Chinese and Western culture and art. The series of activities which includes exhibitions, seminars and exchanges, is intended to enrich the cultural life of local citizens, offer more art related activities to visitors and create an exchange opportunity for local and mainland artists.
The IFT has always been supporting the development of cultural and creative industry of Macao. Through different art courses and exhibitions, it has exposed students and the public to various artistic works. In the future, IFT will continue to provide opportunities to students and citizens to expose to art and also to participate in art creation.
