The Macau Guia Circuit Promotion and Development Association (APDCGM) is once again holding an art exhibition as part of the association’s activities, aiming to have Macau’s unique Guia Circuit included as a UNESCO-listed heritage site.
The exhibition, inaugurated yesterday evening at Senado Square’s Ritz Building, is located in the heart of Macau’s historical center and is an annual event. It is also celebrating the third anniversary of the establishment of the association. This year, it includes works from a total of 25 artists who contributed pieces that range from Chinese calligraphy to painting, photography, ceramics, sculpture, and mixed techniques.
As a novelty this year, the exhibition is held not only inside the Ritz Building, but also outside in Senado Square, where a larger portion of the exhibition is displayed.
A Mini Cooper car painted by the artist Jacky Lee in a graffiti mix technique serves to attract visitors to see the rest of the exhibition.
As in previous years, the exhibition featured work that displayed or was inspired by the main motif, the Guia Circuit – from on-track racing action, to the Macau Grand Prix event, and other perspectives over the circuit and surrounding areas.
Another novelty for this year is the extension of the exhibition for a whole month, until November 22. The organizer said that the extension would allow more visitors to see the exhibition, namely those that travel specifically to attend the Macau Grand Prix from November 14 to 17.
The exhibition is supported by several government departments, including the Macao Government Tourism Office, the Municipal Affairs Bureau, the Macao Post and Telecommunications Bureau, and the Casa de Portugal em Macau (Macau’s Portuguese Association).
