  • This art was not off the beaten path of the Macau S.A.R. tourism? And admission is free. From the basement floor ground at 4th floor of large space-intensive Art Museum holds exhibition Macau S.A.R. citizenship for mainly contemporary art and exhibition. Tourists who did'nt. Who of course was none at all in a comfortable atmosphere. When you visit on-site using a huge space was exhibited at the exhibition of modern artists from the former Soviet Union's major works, the different floors with Atlantic Empress of the last de-facto rulers of the Chinese Qing dynasty vase collection exhibition. In addition to its permanent exhibitions, was filled with. From the Sands Hotel near the ferry terminal in Macau S.A.R. on foot here we went sightseeing Macau S.A.R. Science Museum and seaside statue across from the tourist after. I think better in 3 pieces.

  • This is where politics don't matter, a few displays by Xu Bing crossing the line and might be quite controversial against the Chinese government and its people, others like us will take it as a laugh,...  more »
  • I was delighted by the displays of contemporary works that were on show during my visit. I was expecting a very conservative collection but it was anything but.  more »

  • Such a fun day out for me and my three year old. The gallery spaces are well curated, presenting a great range of local art, craft and contemporary installations. It's not too big that you feel fatigued and the art square surrounding the buildings is really pleasant. I really enjoyed the diverse work on show. The interactive sections of the exhibitions allowed for some fun free play. The guards and reception staff are relaxed, friendly and welcoming to families. Check it out!
  • Surprising find...i didn't know that such an art scene existed by HK outside of Basel Art Expo. Discovered local artists and found a lot to see. Free admission on public holidays.
  • Interesting public space but hardly anyone using the space. Aquascape with fountain and two sculptures formed central pieces for the space. Architecture looked interesting with strong rectilinear shapes and detailing.
  • In the past three months, I had watched two excellent performances. There was the Saxophone concert held at Macau Centre, and Indian dance held at UMAC Student Center. There were similarities and differences between these two performances, which was rather inspiring. Performers stand on the stage and show their talent. The performers’ dedication to their work has really inspired me to better myself with the work that I do. In addition, these two performances were interactive and changed dependent on the audiences’ reaction. In the shows, I was not only watching it, but also participated in it. They had an emphasis on expression of emotion. The performances would drive your thought, so that you would more enjoy the show. Despite the growing similarities between the two performances in the expression of emotions, they had been depicted very differently through the use of music and dance. Saxophone concern was using music to express the feeling whereas Indian dance was focused on the art of body language. Furthermore, the amount of performers differed in numbers. The Saxophone concert is required the cooperation of the group to bring out the story. In turn, Indian dance had two main characters that did not require the cooperation with each other to finish the show. In conclusion, these two performances were similar in the nature of delivering emotions but at the same time were different through their mode of delivery. I much preferred the saxophone performance due to my interest in music over dance.
