Open your mind

Language & the Art of Xu Bing
Chinese contemporary artist Xu Bing, known for his printmaking and installations that subvert language, meaning and tradition, unveiled his first solo exhibition in Macau this week, one that is sure to challenge the audience, as surely as Bing has challenged himself over the course of his 30-year career. The exhibition, held at The Macao Museum of Art, showcases 30 significant works, including his magnum opuses Book from the Sky and Book from the Ground. The Chongqing-born artist’s new work, an excerpt of Chinese Viola by Portuguese poet Camilo Pessanha using Bing’s famous Square Word Calligraphy, will also be on display.

Appreciate the classics

Chamber Music  · Conversing
The Macao Orchestra will showcase its talents with three pieces of chamber music from the Classical era, including Haydn’s Serenade for Strings in F Major; Wind Quintet in B-flat Major by German composer Franz Danzi and the String Quintet No.4 in G minor by Mozart. In contrast to the grandeur of symphonies and the brilliance of solo music, these three pieces of chamber music, demonstrate the flourishing development of wind and string quintets with different styles, are presented in a collaborative and interactive way, but are equal and independent of each other at the same time.
