To celebrate its 20th anniversary, the Macao Museum is organizing Assemblage of Treasures exhibition, featuring over eighty items and treasures selected from exquisite collections. These are all selected from the museum, and are a representation of the Macao Museum’s continuous dedication to historical relics which have a cultural and artistic value related to Macau.
The exhibition is divided into six sections ─ “Lingnan Paintings”, “European Traveller’s Paintings”, “Style and Life”, “The Multicultural Macao”, “Exhibition Overview” and “Education Space” ─ which all highlight the cultural exchange between East and West that spans over four hundred years. The inheritance of Chinese cultural traditions can be found in Chinese and Western paintings, household appliances, and personal legacies of celebrities, such as of Gao Jianfu, George Chinnery and André Auguste Borget, who resided in Macau due to its unique environment and who built a special bond with the city, showcasing the charm of Macau’s culture.
In conjunction with the theme of the exhibition and to allow the audience to get to know more about the collection of cultural relics in the Macao Museum, the exhibition venue features multimedia displays and educational areas. On October 27 (Saturday), the organizer will hold a thematic talk entitled “Appreciating the paintings in the Exhibition of the Macao Museum Collection for Celebration of the 20th Anniversary” by the Director of the Museum, Chan Kai Chon.
Residents, associations, and schools are welcome to register for the talk. During the exhibition period, an “Order” workshop themed on the Macao Museum’s collection will be held on October 20, November 24 and December 15, from 10:30am to 11:30am for families, and from 12:o0pm to 1:00pm for the public.
