With the current unfortunate circumstances that no one needs a reminder of, the entertainment scene has become restricted and sometimes even frozen globally. Thus, when a worldwide-renowned and critically acclaimed art show comes to town, there is no reason to miss it!

The 2020 Macau New Woman Contemporary Art Exhibition – Sen-SEX-bility and Inter-SEX-tuality is organized by the New Woman Development Association of Macao and co-organized by 480.0 Gender & Art Space (Hong Kong). “Sen-SEX-bility”, is using our ability to be aware and to perceive, to feel the initial collision of “sex” that brings to our sense and find the purest consciousness that “sex” brings to the human.
“Inter-SEX-tuality”, is the cognition of sexual sensation, sexual perception, sexual memory, sexual imagination, and sexual thinking. As life blooms and withers, the growth of each life is a unique blooming process, and we as the host of these blooming lives, let us enlighten the desire to gain knowledge and become an “Inter-SEX-tual” person. “Inter-SEX-tuality” is about exploring through messages from human senses to learn about “sex” with our cognitive ability.

The Rebirth in the Spring Breeze: Art Exhibition of He Duoling showcases nearly 50 pieces and sets of sketches and oil paintings that cover various periods of He’s artistic pursuit, including his new works from 2019. From these exhibits, visitors will catch a glimpse of his artistic development and feel his vigorous and endless creativity.
This exhibition also showcases House with No Roof and Wild Garden, Woman and Wall, the large-scale paintings completed by He last year. He has a fondness for architecture; he contemplated and constructed the relationship between the figures and the architectural environment in his Labyrinth Tower series, and he designed the He Duoling Museum by himself. He thinks highly of architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s ‘less-is-more’ approach and has integrated the architectural philosophy into his artistic language: using subtractive techniques, he conveys the subtlety and fullness in the refined yet simple composition of his paintings.
