In the opening ceremony, there will also be a keynote speech and an artist sharing, which will have invited guest speaker Yao Feng, hostess Wendi Song and artist Cecilia Ho from the art exhibition last year.
The theme “WM” (“Wo Mun” in Cantonese) is a homonym of the word “Woman” in English and the word “We” (“Wo Men”) in Mandarin. Under the constraints of the social system and cultural influences, the majority excessively magnify certain traits of a particular gender while ignoring the existing homogeneity in between males and females. This exhibition, which conveys the commonality of “WE” as humans, aims to promote equal opportunities for people of different genders. In addition, the word “Mun” (“Wo Mun”) which means “Door” representing “Macau” (“Ou Mun” in Cantonese) as the carrier, to convene and nurture the participating artists (three local artists, as well as three multicultural artists, staying in Macau) in exchanging ideas and inspiration.
